I've noticed a tab for a song by my band (Alabama 3, A3 in the US), that so closely resembles a tab I put up on our official site, I'm wondering if the person responsible just copied it (badly), and posted it here. The song is called, Let The Caged Bird Sing. To say that this pisses me off, is something of an understatement. I've sent a complaint to admin, but have, so far, not received a reply.

Also, the person responsible is claiming to be a member of Alabama 3, which is, of course, utter, delusional nonsense.

there's not a lot can be done...I recently noticed a tab for an alice cooper song (pick up the bones) that was exactly the same as mine that I put up ages ago, but with a different user name - only I tabbed it completley wrong, so I doubt that two people would tab the same song so wrong.

In short, live with it. there's not a lot can be done because there's no real way to prove that people stole your tab.

the admin will most likely change that tab to credit you and will put it under your accounts contributions.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

The thing is, on the chorus for example, it's impossible to make out what the guitar is doing, it's not difficult, you just can't make it out, which kind of leads to the conclusion that only I could have tabbed it.

but at the same time, the guitar part is horribly wrong...have you tried to play it with the record?
ps, I'm not having a go...just sayin... the other tab isn't even by you lol

No, it is my tab (minus some tiny details), and it is exactly what I played on the record. Obviously I have the master, so it would be possible to isolate the guitar to hear what's going on. Also I know for a fact that this kid can't even play the thing, never mind tab it.

That is indeed what they've done. However, I asked them to remove it, as it was incorrectly copied...ah well. I also got a full apology from the kid that nicked it, so, no hard feelings.

I've seen 2 of my tabs end up on other sites, they didnt delete my name or email off of them so I dont care.

Aslong as I get the credit for my work, I'm more than happy to have it on every tab site out there.
