It's pretty easy. Basically, how do you mainly use ultimate guitar? I personally use it almost completley for the tabs and I think a lot of other people do too, but you never know. I also start a lame thread like this one every once in a while.

Tabs, forum discussion and sometimes info on gear. But Harmony Central seems to be better for the latter.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

I only ever go on UG for The Pit. After all, I'm a drummist, not a guitarist.
So I voted forums.

It goes in this order:

1) Forum (Mainly the Pit)
2) Tabs
3) Articles/News/Interviews

I use UG to try to get laid.
It obviously has not worked yet.
But I will keep trying.

i use it for about 2/3 of the options you gave.

sometimes when you're spending too much time online, it's nice having a bbit of human contact, even when most people here live on the other side of the world.

I used the forums, but I also use it for news, tabs, articles - lessons, and those in the van stories. Other than that - waste my days on it.
