guitartabs.com shut down
Oh this is the biggest crock of monkey shit I've ever heard in my life. I'm not even a guitarist, but I've used this site before trying to learn (failed miserably, btw).
Anyone attempting to learn guitar, I guess your stuck playing 'Franky and Johnny' or 'Yankee fucking doodle dandy' until your actually good enough to listen to a song and play it note for note now. GOOD FUCKING LUCK! ><
What the hell is a by-ear transcription?!?!
It means you listen to the song, pause it, and write down what notes you heard (or think you heard), continue on in the same manner.
Hmmm, how about we kill them all?
Seriously, what's their f***ing problem. It's not like if we steal the damn songs dammit, we like them and want to play them.
I don't play guitar (i plan to try later), but i do play piano and use guitar pro frequently.
Annoying 'law' bastards.
It's our damn decition if we want to do "by-ear transcription".
EDIT: Not like it's easy to do it with a song that has 4 vocalists and like 6 instruments or more. -_-
Thats fucking retarded. If i listen to a song and play the song i hear they want me to pay to do that? How the hell do they plan on doing that? Why would they even WANT to? Are they that desperate to grab every single dollar they think they can legally wring out of the public?
Money-hungry mother f***ers. Well, there's still more partitures & tablatures sites, but if they want to, they may eventually go and try to close those too.
By the way... where does it say they want to charge you for that O_o?
Just wait, they'll probably sell the tabs at some point. ><
In any case, if they get away with it, it sets them up to go further. They'll keep doing it till someone fights them. If the person that fights them looses in court, there's basically no stopping them, as legal precedence is set.
I use ultimate-guitar.com
In my opinion, it's the best tab site out there. And it's pretty much flat-out refusing to stop what it does. So yeah, use that one.
Actually, I had thought ultimate-guitar was the only tab site left at this point. I'm kinda surprised guitartabs.com made it this long.
This is not as if the guitar (or other instruments) fans were selling the music they produce thanks to those tabs >.>
Hell, it even provided some free advertising to the songs' authors >.>
We will see that in some years we won't even have the right to whistle to musics we love ~_~ (in France, we already can't sing them in public... WTFP ?! poor France :()

Thanks for that other site Gus, I'll keep that in mind next time I want to try guitar, or making a FoF/GH song.
Edit for Shautieh:
My Mother shouldn't be allowed to sing.
