Default Tabs?

What are the best sites for them? Ultimate-guitar.com is crap but I found a few class ones. here:

brokenbricks.com

lennonchords.info

dylanchords.info

Extremely accurate... Now... Tell me some deadly sites that I don't know about... Cheers

Download guitar pro. Use ultimate guitar.

Job done. Ultimate guitar is an excellent site for most things. THe problem isn't the site itself, its just that 90% of non-guitar pro or non-powertab style tablatures on the internet suck balls.

What I've always been interested in is having a program that you could hook your guitar or bass up to your computer, play your song, and have the tabs automatically transcribed for you. I can write tabs, but a lot of the songs I write can get to be really complicated to try and write it down. Does anyone know of a program that sounds like that?

the musician in me says that would be effing wicked cool, the student who studied computer programming in me is in tears. it would be a super hard thing to code and have worthwhile results at an affordable price.

i seem to remember hearing about production suites that had some sort of functionality like that, maybe the last version of Cakewalk or something along those lines. either way, you'd have to be really tight and chords would be a mess for the system to read and transcribe accurately to what you're playing. it might know you played a D chord but to recognize which voicing it's coming from would be a real challenge for the developers.

can any of the studio pros here shed a little light?

get a casio digital guitar, hook it up to your computer as a midi controller, and basically any program that can record through a midi recorder will record whatever you play, and you can later turn it to a guitar tab with guitar pro

if you think that's true than you're gonna have a hard-time, more than half of the tabs on the internet are on that site, and a lot of other sites are programmed to steal tabs from UG, don't believe me? check out 911-tabs and you'll see the same exact tab show up on 5 different sites.

Uh, try Finale Print Music. It's really not that amazingly new.


Oh, and this site is normally pretty right on.

911tabs uses almost exactly the same archive as ultimate guitar.

I use ultimate guitar, and just try to find the most accurate tabs on there..

Never bothered looking at any others, it's done my quite well.

I wonder if there's any better tab sites out there.
