    I was at a dentist (oral surgeon) to be evaluated for having my wisdom teeth removed. While waiting, I picked up a guitar mag (hey, thinks I, pretty cool to have any sort of music mag at doctor's office) - don't recall which one.
    There were easily half a dozen song transcriptions.
    all in TAB - no regular written music.
    Is the expectation that we're all illiterate? How hard is it to include regular notation (which includes a lot of information that is hard to tab) along with your tab transcriptions?

    Jeez Louise....

    Not everybody can read sheet music but I'm sure a lot of people understand TAB.
