I was told about a website called Songterr this evening. It's basically a guitar tabs site which include rhythms. Songterr features automated tabs with midi playback attached.
Have any of you used/use Songterr? If so, do you like it? If so, what's the pro's? Con's?
Thank you, TJI
I'll know better when I can listen at home.
I use Truefire.com
They have all kinds of stuff, but you have to pay for it. There are all kinds of lessons from beginner to professional with tabs and slow motion videos.
I have learned some really sophisticated songs and techniques using their stuff. They do have a lot of free sample lessons too.
If you wanted to take private lessons from a world class guitar teacher, but couldn’t afford it, I’d suggest you check it out.
Thanks, prisoner6. I hate to ask stupid questions....but here goes....
I’m assuming you’re playing guitar tabs?, or bass? Drums?
Thanks, P-Marlowe. I haven’t visited the resource, but how do they acquire their tabs? The one thing that doesn’t thrill me about Songsterr is that it’s like a Wikipedia for guitar and bass tabs. Drums as well. Anyone can submit tabs.
Stiff fingers limit a lot, LOL. Years ago I did all the usual 50's 60's music, heavy on the Surf sounds. Had an original Ventures model Mosrite.
You might also want to try....
Excellent tabs site
It’s pretty cool, there’s a bunch of songs I learned how to play using it.
Had and original Ventures model Mosrite? Tell me didn’t sell it.
This is mainly for our son. Although, I play bass and guitar, but not nearly as nimble and riffed as he.

still searching for that all so elusive (not to mention expensive) 68 Tele
She taught me piano and how to read music. In high school I started drums as well as French horn.
I played anything then, now it's just a little finger pickin'.
Forgot to mention the acoustics.
Beautiful. You’re blessed to have been taught by your own grandmother. My grandma was a singer and piano player. She mainly played honky tonk, but could play other styles. My grandmother died before she could pass on these gifts, but my mother, father, siblings, and I still inherited the genes. I play clarinet in HS (drums/percussion and trumpet were already filled....naturally). Also ukulele, but than again, everyone growing up on the island played ukulele and sang.
Glad you never stopped.
Thanks, Bullish. I’ll check that out.
Thanks, wastedyears. I’m continuing to read up on the site. I appreciate the comment.
This is his latest video, I haven't checked it out yet. He is a wealth of info, especially on bass!
I have not seen Dave’s World. Thanks for the link. I’ll check that out.
Ouch on the sale of your Vintage, but I understand. We’ve sold many instruments. One, in particular, was a one of a kind drum made specifically for our family. I was not too happy about that sale. I couldn’t talk a family member (who is to remain anonymous) out of it.
Does anyone use ultimate guitar tabs?
Learn how to read-
Ultimately .... a lot quicker and easier than tab
I’ve used it. Its good. But guitar pro has way more functionality. More songs too
I always just listen to the song on album / tape / cd (you pick the era) and then just play it.....
It’s not so easy when dealing with a tuning that’s not E440 standard.
Yeah... you know... I was copying songs, playing along with the radio etc... long before I ever owned a tuner or even heard the word chromatic. But I’m an old guy...
