I mean, yeah, I am biased as a guitar player, of course, but this is one of the most sensible applications of Flash I have ever seen. 🙂

  1. Bah, when I saw the title of the post I was hoping it was going to be about some kind of whack-a-mole game using browser tabs…

  2. Oh that is good for online. I wouldn’t need tab for that particular song from Cash, but I can see why it works well. A side note: I agree with the comments. A friend of mine who worked for Cash for two decades has some interesting insights into the relationship with Rick Rubin and how Rubin was able to get the essential sound from him by enabling him to be himself. While some think of him as “country”, he remained intensely interested in rock until the end of his life and Rubin understood that.

    I use Guitare Pro at home for composition and tab work. At $50 a copy, it is the best software deal I ever encountered. I realize there is more and other, but that package is very good for composing. Not very good for printing but that’s ok.

    Thanks for the pointer!

  3. Wasn’t so much linking to that song as to the site as a whole… 🙂

  4. As I said, I like the site. That’s a good use of open systems although it may cross the line regards the copyrights. Free tab sites get the same attention as free midi sites from the Powers That Be.

    In my opinion, that’s a shame because free tab and free midi feedback into the talent pool. The players are the main beneficiaries as they can quickly learn better licks and then if they have the moxie, improve on them. Yeah, there is the inevitable pilfering but I’ve never minded another player imitating. Outright claiming a composition, that’s theft but we all get better from copying and always have.
