Learn to sight read properly like a REAL musician Tabs are for scrubs who are lazy. Do you read your favorite books in Spanish? Did you give your weeding speech in binary code? No You do those things in your native language, so why is your music any different.

Stop being lazy. Then maybe you kidiots wont be posting in youtube covers constantly "TABS MAN!???? WHERE ARE THE TABS?????"

Teach yourself properly kthxbye

Real musicians do it by ear, pussy.

note: Most of us don't even play guitar anymore.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Lamest rant of the year.

Oh yeah, and since we're comparing "native languages," tabs would be the equivalent of a native language for a lot of guitarists/bassists, so your main point is invalid.

I dunno, most youtube covers don't consist exclusively of rapidly scrolling sheet music. Perhaps they should. I can pencil (lol) a pretty mean semi(lol)quaver(lol).

In the meantime, people use tabs.

If I'm learning a language, I might use a translator on occasion to help myself out.
Its the same thing.

Thats a pretty good point

Because I can't be bothered to figure everything out by ear. I have this really amazing thing, and it's called "my life". Basically, it means that between the time I spent going to uni, going out with friends and doing some work I don't really have the time for that crap.

From now on I will post "WHERES THE SHEET MUSIC MAN?" on every Youtube guitar video I watch.
#19
Because learning a song by ear is incredibly boring and irritating. I can easily do it even with harder songs but it takes more time. Some people can't learn stuff by ear and have to be shown it, tab is an easier and more efficient way of learning to play guitar, unless your trying to copy a guitar player's style, and that's the last thing i want to do.

Don't have the motivation/talent, those two things lie somewhere else.

...vorite books in Spanish? Did you give your weeding speech...

Weeding speech, regularly given before the removal of undesired fauna.
#22
I use my ears for what I can, and tabs for anything I have problems with.

Why is that so bad?

Essentially, tabs are too easy to read so no respect, but reading in your native language must be MUCH harder for you if you denigrate reading in a second language right?

Hm...no.

Shut the fuck up kthxbye

People will do whatever the hell they want and it's not up to you to say if they're real musicians or not.

So you decided. Good for you. Looks like you'll still have to wait a few years before you're old enough to act on it though

In the meantime, use your ears, and develop a knowledge of scales, modes and keys. Then you don't even need to write anything down.

is it a sin to read tabs?

Yes, even though sheet music provides the same information about a particular piece of music, expect for telling you which strings to press.

I'm arguing that tabs are actually more convenient and useful for guitarists. Learning sheet music only helps communicate with other musicians.

1. I don't even play guitar anymore.
2. I do sometimes read some books or watch movies in Spanish. I'm learning the language and it helps.
3. Why does it matter to you?

Honestly, most of the musicians I've ever played with have no idea how to read music. So I wind up having to tell them the notes I'm playing out loud, have them write them down, and then playing whatever it is I want them to do over and over until they get it right.
