They might be done, but there's still countless tab sites running - a good thing for beginning musicians like myself.

Almost every cd I own was either burned or bought used. So no worries.

^^ Yes, yes it was.


Mxtabs was reopened in February with the hope of receiving some sort of response; with the lack of that response, it is sadly time to close.

This depresses me. I loved Mxtabs.

Rest in peace, my good friend. :(

I've always had better results with Ultimate-guitar anyways.

I, too, was always a UGer, but I used MxTabs occasionally as well. It's too bad that websites have to go down over such insanities as the recording industry is creating. =/

not so. you still support music put out by them. if you truly abhor their practices you'd avoid all music licensed to the riaa. even downloading their music -- which doesn't harm them at all as you likely wouldn't pay for it in any case -- helps them because you promote bands signed with them.

Same is happening gradually with all of them. Last time is happened with taborama. Not to be anymore.

How does it promote them if they don't get any money for it? If you buy it used, the only profiteer is the pawn shop or wherever you buy it. And no, I'm not going to give up listening to good music just because the RIAA sucks shit. If they don't make any money from it, that's all that matters.

You talking about whether you like or dislike the album, your friends (if you have any) hearing the album in your car or at your house, stuff like that promotes a band at no cost to the record company itself. Also, there is plenty of good/great/amazing music that's not affiliated with the RIAA at all that you can survive on (though there are some occasionally great bands on major labels too which is unfortunate).

Also, some of the larger indie labels (Epitaph, Victory) are now under RIAA control as of recent (does that make any sense?). And there is no way I am throwing out my Streetlight Manifesto stuff, and early Offspring.

Do you know a good alternative one? Even with Guitar Pro files? Just asking because my brother used to use it so I guess it'd help him. Thanks in advance.

Ultimate Guitar does the trick most of the time. (http://ultimate-guitar.com)

Ah, this was my favorite site for tabs, I've been using it for years. It was way better than any other site because it was so easy to use.

I was feeling depressed when I read that letter.

then accept that you're supporting, at least in some part even if not by direct monetary contributions, the RIAA.
