    yup, just did.

    i'm still cant tab songs out for myself. i'm sad, i know.
     
  4. I've banned myself from tabs. I'm learning notation, but it's hard to find notation without tab. I used tab when I first started, but I find most of them to be inncorrect now. I also feel that I can't learn anything from tabs, it's just an easy way to learn a song.

    I've tried to help some people a few times by offering standard notation and chord charts.

    I am banned from the TaB fOrUm due to the fact that I am a member of Clan Tabevil©.

    Now that you mention it, it's been a long time since I played from a bass tab. I don't really need to anymore. Whoa, go me! :)

    I've posted there a couple of times, can't remember why, but I've never used it to look for tabs. I do it by ear.

    Just came from there. Anyone notice that they can mess you up playing a song as much as they help you? I mean, I listen to what I'm playing and I don't seem to think a lot of times that the tabs are right. No offense to anyone who wrote them.
     
  17. I only ever use them if I'm really stuck (trying to work it out myself) or if it's something I've got to be able to play, but can't stand listening to.

    Even then they're usually wrong, but they'll at least give me a slight idea. I occasionally hear things about a 4th up from where they are, so it can be the break I need.

    A bit off topic, but i think its really cheap and stupid how you guys disregard tab, and to the extent you go to do so, whether joking or not.

    Who cares if people use them?
