Personally I just found the site when googling tabs years back. Kept coming here for tabs for a while, and eventually stumbled upon the forums.

Was looking up stuff about Goth, found erling's article about it, then found the Only Goth Music Thread, and decided to register.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

I found the site while looking for tabs, and then found the forums. For a while I was just a browser, but then decided to register because I liked what I read and wanted to join in.

Yea, something like that for me. I always used MXtabs untill it closed down, so I came to UG and found it was far superior.
apparently UG's only type O-

I think it found it looking for a songwriting forum and then i stumbled into the pit! Now the whole site is like a brother to me!
God Bless UG!

Through 911 tabs. But that pisses me off; I hate the frame at the top. So I bookmarked UG for tabs, and eventually came across the forums.
#19
google -> tabs -> 911 tabs -> UG.com (-> Forums -> The Pit -> " how did you get into UG?")

I used to use Mxtabs, but I couldn't find a decent tab for a certain song. I googled and I found UG. I joined under a different screename in February of 2005, but I never activated it. Then in December of 05 I registered with another name, then decided to check out the forums. I've been here ever since.

Oh yeah, they already deleted my other name after I notified them.

Back when I first started playing I used to site for tabs and then couldn't find one. So I worked it out myself and tried to submit it to the site and discovered you needed to be a member. I signed up, submitted a few more tabs and last year decided to join the forums just for the hell of it. And now here I am ^_^

for me the important thing, is not how i got into UG, but why i stayed.

shortly after i got here, i found The Pit.

being the old pervert that i am, i got addicted.

then became emotionally involved with an intoxicating young enchantress .... a minor.

so, i'll be off to prison soon.

....you know, same old story.

I liked MX. Pity it got closed down. I much preferred the way you looked for tabs. So much more organised...

I came here for tabs after mxtabs got closed, then decided to join the forms ( I used to think UG sucked compared to mx)

Searched for tabs, used it for maybe 6 months and then I noticed the forums, I became a member and started to hang around in the GN'R thread. Then I got tired of that thread and ended up here.
#36
I started using the site for tabs a few years back, then I found the forums and spent some time browsing the pit. after a while I decided to register, and go into my first discussion in a thread titled "Satanism?" A few posts in I got a good comment from Felkara (who's posted here a bit further up) and I've been here since...

Like most of UG, I have no life.

Dude, you just made the most intelligent post in this entire thread. Congrats.
