Do you have any personal examples?

I've oftentimes thought about uploading a powertab of the Stele suite by Phillip Houghton, but I really do not want to dishonor the song and composer by both allowing the piece to come into the hands of the general public, and by removing certain funds that would have otherwise gone towards the composer/publisher.

In fact, there are some pieces, such as the Koyunbaba suite, that I feel should be removed from tab websites, such as this one.

What do y'all think?

That's a good question. I don't think I'll ever try to tab Black Sabbath's Lonely Is the Word. It's the most emotion Iommi has put into a solo, a long one at that, and I don't want to see anyone play it.

Well I think it might be a different situation for each of those circumstances...

For my particular example, I have the sheet music for the piece and would have tabbed it out from that.

I don't agree, I think everything should be made available. You don't have to listen if someone murders a song.

The thought process of antman4 and Logan699p, del monte, Bloo, and Mazzakazza:

antman4: "I will go to an internet forum and display my below average intelligence."

Logan699p: "My intelligence is similar to that of antman4, so I will jump on the bandwagon and iterate the same thing mindlessly."

del monte: "My intelligence is similar to that of Logan699p, so I will jump on the bandwagon and iterate the same thing mindlessly."

Bloo: "My intelligence is similar to that of del monte, so I will jump on the bandwagon and iterate the same thing mindlessly."

Eh? I've created certain pieces, do you not feel that I should have the right to own them and say what happens to their sheet music?

Music is for everyone, not just the "cooler" or whoever. Spreading the music on is what really matters, if you just keep it to yourself just because you don't want people to know it is a little immature and selfish. Afterall, knowledge is free.

i have all of andy mckee and antoine dufours tabs, some nicholas barron tabs and some andy white tabs, none of which ill upload because the artists need the money they get from selling those tabs and i respect them as artists.

Wishing you had banpowers again, dready?

I don't tab alot, but I can imagine I wouldn't put some particular songs on here. Mostly pianoworks that just aren't the same on the guitar.

edit: cuz I suck so much at tabbing that I can't do justice to the pieces, I should've added. Clearly

Good question! To me, it doesn't make me think the same way you do about this to be honest. There are a few bands that no-one has tabbed out that are my favourite bands, and if someone showed the site that they know how to play one of their songs, I'd be happy.

Well, I can't tab, so I can't answer the question from that perspective.

However, there have been times when I've been hunting down a tab for a song for ages, something that I think sounds really good, and then I'm oddly disappointed to find out how easy it actually is to play. Almost like a magician showing you how he hovers, or something.
#26
There are a couple of songs I'd like to have the tabs for, but I don't really feel they should be released into the public domain. Not for any real reason other than that I wouldn't want them to be overplayed.

Long slow distance by Dixie Dregs is one of those kinds of songs.

It's not just that, but sometimes I feel as if so much disrespect comes to a piece because of the way that it has been proliferated.

As a guitarist, there is something rewarding about knowing that after the long and arduous search for the music, the only way you can get it is to buy it directly from the person who wrote the piece. Having everything available on the internet is both a disrespect to the art of sheet music and to the scarcity of the brilliance within certain pieces.

No, I don't. Countless times I've came up with a funky riff, and a friend has been like " you gotta show me how to play that!".
I don't reply with something like "How about no, you retard. I made it and there ain't no one else allowed to play it!"

I'll show them how to play it, and not be so arrogant.

Is it hard to breathe with your head so far up your ass? I mean you post in a forum notorious for irreverence and wise remarks and then rip on people when they dont agree with your opinion. You're entitled to yours just as much as they are to their's, so maybe just chill.

Tough question, isn't it?

Where do you draw the line?

What makes one composer or their work, worthy of special treatment?

Sorry if that wasn't much of an answer, but it's the best I have.

Well it's not like the minute you post the tab everyone on the internet will know and learn it right away. And plus the only way to "overplay" it in the sense of a lot of airtime/youtube covers/etc is for someone to go as far as learning all of it and you know recording it and posting it.
#39
I don't think making the composition available for the public is disrespectful. Actually, it should be an honor to have your music taught to others, so it can be fully understood. If you don't think so, then you're a pretensious prick (not the person who tabbed it, the artist).


Plus, are you really making that person poor by tabbing their music? Anyone who makes music that's not done for popular airplay isn't relying on it for their sole source of income.

Well no I think that's a great question, because I don't claim to have the answer and I'm asking the same thing.

If someone were to withhold from tabbing or making publically available a certain piece, however, I would not hold it against them if they did it to honor the piece and its composer.
