Out of the whole interwebz do you think UG contains the most talented musicians?
Jackson DXMG -> Vai Morley Wah -> Korg Black Tuner -> (Need a delay) -> Maxon OD808 -> BBE Sonic Maximizer -> ISP Noisegate -> Mesa Boogie Mark IV

well im not including any of the professional musicians (such as the ones that are signed and have no time to use the computer) just the ones that actually use forums and such
Jackson DXMG -> Vai Morley Wah -> Korg Black Tuner -> (Need a delay) -> Maxon OD808 -> BBE Sonic Maximizer -> ISP Noisegate -> Mesa Boogie Mark IV

Well, if you think about it, 90% of the world's best guitarists probably got their tabs off UG.
So would that make them UGers? If not, a large portion of them might still have registered.

I believe that UG is a community of guitarists young and old, beginning and experienced, who gather to share information and their love of guitar to everyone. Of course, there's the Pit, which is a huge exception to all of this.
Gear List:
'97 Gibson Explorer w/ Duncan SH-4 and SH-2
Fender Jazz Bass 'Crafted in Japan'
Yamaha Acoustic Guitar
Vox AD30VT w/ VFS2
Roland Cube 30 Bass

Dunlop .88 Tortex picks

not really, most of the best guitarists learned to play guitar a long time ago. I doubt BB King, Angus Young or Jimmy Page have ever used tabs off UG. But as far as non-professional guitarists and such, yes it is the most popular. So it would attract alot of really good guitarists as well as alot of average and crappy guitarists. It evens out, there are alot of good guitarists and alot of bad ones, there is no minimum skill level to join UG, alot of people who troll UG have probably never touched a guitar in their life.

OFFTOPIC: Why don't you like primus?


Dude it's their slogan! I love Primus. Without them, I'd play bass nothing like I play it now. Les Claypool basically saved me from being a piece of shit bassist.

Hell no. Most guitarist on UG are average at best. YouTube beats UG in this respect any day.



Wait, what?

There are way more ****ty guitarists on YouTube than the good ones.

Just go search for a new pop song with guitar, go to the lowest rated videos and watch them all.

You'll either laugh your ass off at their failure or your ears will bleed.

que?
UG isn't that old so i would bet that the world's best were starting out long before UG came around. and also, if they were really the world's best, they probably wouldn't need the tabs anyway.


My mind is going. I can feel it.

Most of the best guitarists I've met don't really need tabs to learn a song.

True, but the calibre of the good guitarists on YouTube in comparison to those on UG is much higher. And I don't mean the professional guitarists, I'm talking about the people that just play for fun and not money.

Well thankyou very much. Is that taken from the videos off my profile? Because in all fairness mate I'm leaning on the side of my sofa trying to make something to put on here whilst my baby has a brief brake from crying If I had had the time to set up a backing track to it or prepare or anything it would have been a little different.
But thankyou, That was nice of you...

MXtabs have more talented musicians per person, but because they are so small, I'd say we have the most talented musicians, just not because we have a high standard, but because there are so many of us there are obviously gonna be more good musicians here.

Ha.

Ha ha.

From my time there, they are all just old ****s who like collecting expensive gear. They don't have the same passion for music UG does, although there are a fair few people there who know their stuff.

UG takes a lot of flac from other sites about this.

But then 90% of UG visiters can't make it past the pit for some reason, even members.
