Well it is kind of self explanatory. Do you like tab or written music better?

I can't really say myself, but it is hard to read tab because there is not a lot of rythems written in. (most actually don't have rythems). I think tab was created just to show the notes, but I think it would be great if people would include rythems...im getting kind of repetive here so ill end this.

Please explain why you like one over the other.

umm... well if you know the song its pretty easy to tell the rhythms. For guitar anyway. But ya i see your point for bass. But for guitar, tab is def. dominant. I dont know ANY guitarist, besides classical, that reads sheet. Not even, like, my grandpa. And hes OLD.

Ya a ton easier to read. But his got me to thinking... When we put our band together and if we make some songs, are we going to write it in tab?

Well Joe, for guitar it is really easy finding tab. For bass there is a ton less, and then there is 6 string, 5 string, and 4 string...So that makes the tab I can get a lot harder to find. So i find all my tab online, and it has tons a songs joe, it is not limited at all, in fact I would definitly say that there is more online tab than book tab.
