    can I ask why anyone would pay for that when you can get the same exact tab online?

    Weren't online publishers of tabs being hunted down and prosecuted about a year ago this time? What ever became of that mess?

    None of the tab online is official - it's all done by average joe's like me & you. Some of it's accurate, some of it's not, and a LOT of it is incomplete. Less than $40 bucks for the entire VH catalog is a STEAL...

    I use Ultimate Guitar for most of my on-line tabs but its hit or miss. Sometimes you get a clunker like what Slash used for learning Aint Talking Bout Love.

    Tab books suck....period. Many don't show how to play the songs the way Ed did and many are wrong. I've read the Balance tab book and The Seventh Seal is wrong.

    Don't expect to learn Get Up or Summer Nights because many books will expect you to have a Trans Trem.

    You're right about that. I had a teacher who used to tab for guitar mags and he said that the mags didn't care if he got the positioning right, as long as the notes were correct.

    Yeah I have seen some awful tabs. I love it when people tab a song that was in standard but they learned it a half step down. The song is filled with open E and A chords but they tab it to be F and Bb barre chords.

    However its still better than learning from keyboard music like I had to before GFTPM.

    yeah you've got a point. I guess like many of you, I allready have many of The VH tab books, and I find myself getting online and using powertabs more than the actual books.

    I looked at Eruption in the BOBW tab book 2 weeks ago and saw that IT was WRONG. They had the final part as being tapped on the G string, when actually it is done by Eddie on the B. After I saw that, I wanted to throw the book away--after all, if they can't get the DEFINITIVE song correct for Eddie, how are we supposed to trust any of the others are correct. Jesus, all they had to do was copy a Guitar World and they'd get it.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Sites like OLGA used to at least give me a starting point.......Once I could get the basic chord progression, I could figure out the rest on my own. So if a tab was wrong, my ear would tell me and I could adjust it.

    The point is......just because a tab isn't 100% accurate doesn't mean it's worthless......use your ears, not your eyes.
