Any other guitar players here remember when they tried to ban guitar tabs on the internet?

    I forget what year it was, it was well over a decade ago

    Everybody had been getting tabs online for years and then all the sudden some rule came down (I think from music book publishers lobbying) saying you couldnt post guitar tabs online anymore. Even user created ones!

    Anybody remember that? It didnt actually pan out though, as those things tend to go. You can get guitar tabs as easy as ever nowadays.

    I find it even more hilarious in hindsight that they actually tried to ban guitar tabs.

    remember on the old nokia phones how you had to purchase ringtones for songs?

    the phones also had this tone creator, and there were websites that gave you the instructions on how to create that song ringtone that you wanted.

    anyone think those websites are still up and running? not sure if they got banned and removed.

    I had an oldschool version of guitar pro, remember that? You could download a song’s music sheet with tabs and everything, very in depth. I mean I see there’s a new version but I used it back in the day I wonder if you can still get tabs for free in this format.

    Soulja Boy made a lot of money selling ringtones.

    I remember that. A ton of tabs disappeared on Ultimate Guitar around that time due to copyright infringement.

    I used to use that to make music. Here is one I did years ago -



    It's distorted because at the time, the only way to actually save it as a mp3 was to record it through the sound mixer on my PC.

    Really wish they would have made a new guitar hero or rock band on the new consoles. Now that my daughter is old enough we would have a blast tryna rock out together
