Im sure many of you have noticed that powertabs.net is no longer working and I've been reading people fight back and forth about how the powertabs are a copyright infringment etc. But I wanna know what you guys think of it all.

Its really sad because its not like people can afford to buy a tab book for one song etc.

It just means playing and learning guitar is becoming less accessible.

www.ultimate-guitar.com won't be being shut down anytime soon. It's a good Russian TAB site. This is getting ridiculous with the shutting down of TAB sites. It's unofficial stuff, c'mon!

Unfortunately even lyric websites are copyright infringement, let alone tab sites. I don't think it matters too much - the tab sites are almost never accurate.

It;s Bullshit. Fuckin' MPA. I guess I just shouldn't learn guitar anymore?

How many great sites are there that teach how to play rock songs on piano? Barely any, or at least accurate ones. But there is obviously no shortage of people taking up the piano. I think guitar will be just fine.

it sucks ! I do music at college and we have to play existing songs and change them about some what... and what exactly are we to give the musicians to play from if they all close down ! Us students cant afford to buy a tab book for every song we have to play which eventually is counted as a part of our final grade ! :?

www.ultimate-guitar.com is pretty good, but some tabs are unreliable. try that site, i've had the best luck wit them.
