    while looking for notes on-line i am struck by the overwhelming amount of tabs and few standard note sheets around. is there a reason for this other than easy internet transmission? if the advantage of tabs is knowing which position to play, the lack of beat measurements on tabs makes up for it in my opinion. any insights?

    the reason there are so many tabs is because they are so easy to learn and read. and if you havent noticed america is gettin lazier by the minute.

    example of this lazyness- i didnt use 1 comma or capitol in this reply
