    i used to do tabs,it was addicting!i want to learn to read music better,and i want to play songs i like.tabs dont cut it for me anymore.i realized that most of the songs that people put up there,are usually mostly wrong.

    I say good for them. You should be learning to use your ears to figure out songs, anyway. Far more useful than printing out some tab.

    Yeah for the like the past two months I've been ear training.It feels much more satisfying once you're finished and as Angus said,its much more useful.The last tab i printed out was "around the world" because the only songs ive listened and played to are very easy.Also some people actually put up what they think is right,and its wrong,not just to piss people off.

    if you want punk rock tabs.. check out www.punkhardcore.com

    they have tabs on the most obscure bands out there... they got about 2 or 3 tabs for each song...

    well dude. you're pretty much out of luck.. seeing as all those bands you mentioned aren't blink-182... the only way you're going to get sheet music is probably to figure it out yourself...

    I'll tell you now that rancid, op. ivy, bad religion, and nofx will not, and never have sheetmusic.. those bands have integrity in themselves...

    MxPx and Save Ferris; maybe.. but don't count on it...

    so basically to sum it up... get the tabs or figure it out yourself... later.- matt
