    BRITANNICASCHOOLS,

    But see, if you warn them all off, they'll never find out for themselves why they shouldn't ask for tabs here...then, if they take your advice, they'd go through the rest of their FIeLdY wOrShIpPiNg LiVeS with this sense of lingering doubt. That's not healthy....I say, let them ask and find out for themselves why it might not have been a good idea. The knowledge gained will be so much DEEPER that way. ;)

    Regards,

    FSCOTCH TABEVIL
     
  3. metallicarules looks like all that time you spend frolicing in the meadow with the elves is starting to wind you up.

    Getting pretty sick of prancing are you?
     
  4. Chris, that's easy to say for a member of TABEVIL.
    You could be right but from an outside perspective it appears to me that TABEVIL can be quite brutal. Forgetting tabs is a lesson that every cadet needs to learn, though such onslaughts could be very demoralizing to someone so green and could possibly even cause them to drop out of the uh....army.

    Gruff, I am not sick of prancing because to preserve my manhood I don't prance for extended periods of time. Besides, my prancing is very tasteful. Remember, god knows elves like to sing, and singing always works better with some bass to back it up.
     
  5. I hope this TABEVIL catches on.

    From whence cometh, "BLINKY"? Don't get me wrong - I LIKE it, but where did that one come from?

    It frightens me that someone that has a strong grasp on basic scale and chord theory is hailed as theoretical enforcer. Okay, I can be the enforcer, but I am constantly laying down the TOFU GAUNTLET to the supreme, frighteningly supreme, harmonic and theoretical knowledge-icity! of BLINKY and FSCOTCHGUARD.

    However, I can live being the enforcer, for it MUST BE ENFORCED!!! I think it's easier being a theory enforcer when you haven't even heard 99.99999% of all the songs that people are looking for tabs for.

    Tabs undermine respect for effort.

    The ghosts in Pacman (the video game, not the ones that live in Jon's skull), actually have names! Don't ask how I know this. There's Blinky, Pinky, and some others that I can't remember. I don't know, maybe Curtis, Sarah, and Jose.
     
  12. Yes but please don't forget my brown belt in obnoxious peanut gallery.

    no, just kiddin. but if theres a war here, im saying neutral. not because im a pacifist, but because i dont do tabs, or sheet. but if i had to pick a side, itd be against all the little teenybopper fieldy freaks. i may like korns MUSIC, but i dont worship fieldy. give him a one string bass and it wouldnt change the music, as long as its a B. but in my opinion, playing others music just makes you think yer good. then you rip off their songs(by simply alternating their riffs) and suck even more. just play by yourself and listen to other bass players. then get jealous and try that much harder to be better than them. it worked for me.
