That's a brilliant idea too, kinda hard to put up a torrent for every single tab though, cuz the torrent files would be bigger than the tabs themselves! :p There must be a way to loophole this shit...

Yes, but perhaps a torrent per band.

You are a star Mr Nomad, thanks to your hard work and efforts we can carry on the joy of learning/playing/teaching the songs and music we love by the bands we support! Brilliant! :beer:

I have permission from Season of Mist so Watain is safe. Didn't contact Marduk yet.

Again, very soon this information will be available on the website.

Shortly after the tabs were taken down, we started directly contacting bands and their labels, asking for their permission to post tablature. Our attempt to legalise the tabs is very successful so far. The vast majority of bands and labels that replied gave us their permission. Many of them complimented the work we are doing and wished best of luck with the website.

In the coming weeks we will re-open MetalTabs. We will not have as many tabs as we used to have but 100% of them will be legal and the number of tabs will increase as we receive more replies from bands and labels.

Thank you for your continuing support and patience!


Heck yes.

Thanks Nomad
 
Thanks for the hard work Nomad, and hope everything turn fine.

I hope I can keep tabbing Iron Maiden and Tierra Santa, also I wanted to start tabbing Megadeth on Guitar Pro. Anyway, I wish you the best of lucks, and congrats for the website, sincerely, Metaltabs is the best tablature site on the web!

naat. :beer:

Yes, I have great respect for this site, what it aims for and how it has gone about achieving this. Accelerating the music industry's long overdue demise is just a big plus.

TangledMortalCoil 2007-04-27 09:56

this site's an important resource.. thanks for your efforts, nomad

I've seen this done on a few emulation-videogame sites with great success.


Could work. But then there would be a lot useless accounts, because they'd use it only to download tabs.

Edit: Btw, what if there is a band that has been on two or more labels? And what if the band has disbanded?

I just hope the tabs are back up soon. Metaltabs is by far the best website for accruate metal tabs. I hope the Slayer tabs won't be taken off - that would be a disaster but what can you do..........


Anyway, keep up the good work. Much appreciated.

GoreZombie 2007-04-27 22:12

Nice!
 
I hope that it is soon… so that there is nothing as MetalTabs is the best page of tablaturas of Brutal Death Metal. GoreGrind… :uzi: NMPA

DeathCS 2007-04-28 00:12
