I've been playing guitar on and off for 10 years...mostly off...There was heaps more tabs/versions/interpretations of songs on the Internet 10 years ago

I'm trying to find a reasonably popular song and no one has event touched it

Feel like 'monetisation' is unfortunately what properly happened though

Tabs don't randomly disappear unless they've been taken down by the publishers. It will have a big message saying so.

I've recently started playing guitar again and haven't had any problems finding songs I want. pretty much all I've looked for is Nirvana, White Stripes, and Velvet Underground though
#6
Something went down where most of the tab sites (except this one because it's based in russia) got taken down because of copyright or whatever. It happened maybe a year or two after I started playing in 2005, so I'm guessing that was 8 or 9 years ago.

This site's still pretty good for tabs though. They're all user submitted and there are some people on here that are really good, like Joshua Garcia there.


edit: a google search shows a bunch of articles written about it in 2006, so I'm guessing that's when it happened.

Looks like they're still there to me.

Users can't delete their own tabs. Not even the publishers can (they just replace the tab with the message). Users can only resign from being the contributor. The only way to get it off the site is to ask an admin to do it for a good reason. Most users don't.

Considering OP, I'm on the fence about the suggestion made. Not to be mean, but his ears are going and he can only hear guitar.

The bass actually starts the song but I don't know what note it's playing. I am also 30% deaf in one ear so I am at a further disadvantage here.
....
So no guitars...I cannot tell what notes he is singing my ear is not trained? Where would you event start in a song like this? No chords, weird instruments...all the things that are meant to help you find key are not there...I know I've got to hear his voice but I just can't even make out the notes let alone which one's are dominant.
Glad to cross paths with you on this adventure called life

lots of flirting with the other key without confirming. JUST LIKE THEIR LOVE IN THE MOVIE OH DAMN.

Do you mean the old school tabs where somebody prints out the whole thing? Because nobody wants to do that pain in the ass thing anymore.
