I realize that this is extremely specialized, but all Bob Dylan songs are transcribed on dylanchords.info. I have never found an inaccuracy on that website. http://www.bradpriddy.com/paul_simon/ has good Paul Simon transcriptions. http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/~aparsons/guitar/guitar1.html has accurate folk/rock transcriptions. As for the other sites mentioned in other posts, I find most of these websites to be spotty at best.

I don't use it often but I've had decent luck with Chordie:

mxtabs looks promising - they post the same usually-crappy ASCII tabs as everyone else, but they have legal permission to publish them, so at least the site won't disappear.

I end up using Sheet Music Direct most of the time, though. I'd rather pay $.99 for a proper tab (with sheet music, so I can see the timing etc.) than deal with most of the amateur tabs.

(Many of the "pro" tabs at SMD are wrong too, but at least the odds are better.)

Thanks for the links mmoncur and Laoch. Chordie's got some great chord sheets that use a lot. I never think to go there for songs. That mxtabs site looks like it's a step above the rest by organizing the same old tabs so that you don't click the same tab over and over and over again.

I love song books. I've got a little mini collection going. Probably 30 or so. I'll sometime combine a chord sheet and the song book to make an accurate chord sheet. It's a lot easier to have it all on one page. I didn't know until this thread started and mmoncur and Musenfreund metioned that Sheet Music Plus sells songs individually. I'm going to have to check that out.

Well, somebody (or somebodys) mentioned PowerTab, is PT still avalible? I go to the Website and the message is somthing like: Due to legal actions, PT was forced to close blah blah blah, now I don't know about all y'all but I found PT to be about the best program for learning songs. Shame if its gone for good :cry:

Fear not! Another thread will get ya back up and running. https://www.guitarnoise.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=44108&p=402226#p402226 Apparently, it runs Guitar Pro files as well as PT files. You can find plenty of Guitar Pro files on this site. http://www.911tabs.com/ Type in the band name, click search and the result set is displayed on the page. The far right columns indicate power tabs or guitar pro files. Click on where it shows you how many "tabs". It doesn't look like it, but it's a regular hyperlink.

The program is still available here

It's the archive of songs that they maintained which has been "lawyered out of existence".

A bit of googleing can find some sites that have PTB tabs, however.

Well thanks rp and Kent,

But that one link to a link you sent just said "Tablature (not downloadable at the moment!)" So if the powers that be had any business sense, they could probably get like 99c a tab (for a reliable one of course). But too much squabbling gets in the way of good profits and good music.... :roll:

I posted this yesterday over in the Beginner forum... thought I would mention it here as well...

I just found a free alternative to Guitar Pro called "Tux Guitar". It has the same interface and all the features of Guitar Pro (except for the RSE sounds).

http://www.tuxguitar.com.ar/

If you currently own Guitar Pro, there is no need to even look at this. If you don't, and don't want to pay for GP... check it out.

If you have GuitarPro (if you haven't, you should!) go to http://www.gprotab.net/ . This is the successor to Mysongbook.

I should also recommend TuxGuitar http://whttp://eventful.com/curitiba/demand/kiss-/D0-001-003087759-6?utm_source=email&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=demand-thank-you-registered-user-#shareww.tuxguitar.com.ar , a java alternative to GuitarPro that can open GP files.

TuxGuitar is not as featured as GP, but comes pretty close to it and it's FREE. Besides it runs on any OS that supports Java (i.e. Linux, Windows, Mac, et al.)
