    Sure is disappointing that the RIAA or MPAA had to throw their weight around and force the removal of the tabs. Sure takes a lot out of the lesson, but thanks anyhow Guitar Noise for having the information here!!!

      Hi Dylan

      We don’t think of it as “throwing their weight around” as much as we think of it as doing our share to make sure the songwriters get their due. Intellectual property rights issues have always been thorny and none of the people who originally crafted copyright laws could have ever imagined having to deal with the Internet. Eventually, we’ll work it all out.

      We’re simply glad to be working on the side of the songwriters and artists and hope to continue to work out ways to bring more of their work into our song lessons. One by one we’re getting song lessons back online and we thank you for your patience in this matter.

      Looking forward to chatting with you again.
