All the discussion about tab vs. standard notation aside, why is it that some folks are always "looking for x bass tabs"? I understand that not everyone reads or cares to learn standard notation, and many notable accomplished players, including Paul McCartney, don't read. It seems to be a trend among the younger players, as most of us "older" players once were. But I found that back then I only used tab if it were presented to me in a magazine or something. Kind of a "just because it's there" tab reader. If I ever wanted to learn a tune I loved, I listened to it over and over and figured it out myself. My question is, why not use your ears to learn a song instead of relying on tab?
