Why should the complexity of a song have anything to do with the scoring? Shouldn't the score just be based on the author's interpretation and how close it is? Adding a complexity factor just seems like an easier way for tabbers who can tab that well to boost their score....

if you get me..

So, you are saying that the more talented tabbers should have a similar score to far less talented tabbers? Please explain your reasoning here, this sounds very illogical.

In my opinion, of course the more talented tabbers should have a higher score. What exactly is unfair about that?

i would have about the same score, but only for my number of tabs. i have a large number of mortician and burzum tabs which were quite easy to do, as well as some much more complex tabs. but as was said before, less experienced guitar players would look at my mortician tabs, and say "holy shit, this cunt's amazing! that's the most technical thing i've ever seen!" and give me a huge rating that i don't really DESERVE since they take about 10 minutes to tab out.

anyway, i don't think it's worth it.

You obviously didn't read what I wrote throughout this thread. There wouldn't be less experienced players saying your Mortician tabs are 5 out of 5 on a complexity scale because there simply wouldn't be inexperienced people voting. This whole idea hinges on a panel, if you want to know more about that, simply read what I wrote earlier in this thread.

I'm still waiting for the people who disagree to explain why less talented tabbers deserved the same score as the more talented tabbers. Going by that logic, since the accuracy of a tab often relies on a tabber's ability, a highly innaccurate tab with many missing parts deserves the same as a complete, fully accurate tab. So, please, enlighten me as to why somebody who only tabs Anal Cunt derserves to be recognized as being as good as somebody who tabs Necrophagist or Nile.

It just a number Chris. If it makes you feel better I will declare that ALL of your tabs are better than thedoctors 1 bar SOD tabs.

if it makes you feel more better, one tab of yours is more well-constructed than all my mortician tabs put together....

there's something else that could be a flaw with your system chris.

fuck...i'm dead. normally pretty easy riffs. most of the time (especially from the split EP), damn near impossible to hear.

how would we rate the complexity of bands with easy-ish riffs that are impossible to hear?

This doesn't have so much to do with me as it has to do with fairness. I'm not in this for glory and never have been. If you look at my tab list, I don't work exclusively on tech shit. In fact, I'd have to imagine less than half of my tabs were tech at all. I've done a ton of easy songs like that Nuclear Assault tab, plus all those old Cannibal Corpse and Deicide tabs, not super easy, but hardly what I'd call technical metal.

This more has to do with the people who do work almost exclusively with tech stuff, more power to them, I say. Personally, when looking through my own stuff, I'd like to be able to see a disparity between my easier stuff and my hard stuff. Why should I get the same score for a tab that took me less than an hour as opposed to a tab that took me months?

As far as production goes, I hadn't thought of it and you're the first person to bring it up. So far, it doesn't look like anybody likes my idea anyway, so it's really irrelevant. If my idea were to go through, we could further discuss it, or we could now. I've done a lot of stuff off of albums with shit for production, and I don't mind so much that I'd get the same score for a song from Breeding the Spawn as I would for a song from Pierced from Within. In fairness, though, there is a disparity there, and perhaps that should be quantified as well. What exactly do you think should be done here?

I thought your idea was pretty good.

I do agree with your thoughts on the production thing, tabbing a Breeding song would be even more difficult than tabbing a Pierced one generally. However, as good as it is to brainstorm these ideas, I don't think you're going to get a perfectly fair system regardless. I personally would not bother with chucking the production into the score if I was making the tab rating system. But I'm not................

Hard work pays off





btw are you voting for yourself? The hit to vote ratio for your tabs definately does not add up...

I voted for myself once on my Ulver-Hoyfjeldsbilde tab (the first tab I submitted) and nothing happened so I didnt do it anymore (oddly enough, thats my tab with the lowest score). But besides that I'm not, I'm a bit curious also as to how my score went up almost 10 points over night...

How is the score calculated anyway?

Only counts if there is 3 votes or more. A score of 3 counts zero points, score of four counts 1, and a five counts 2 points. anything below a 3 with five votes deducts points.

Fuck, I have so many tabs rated 5, and so many with less than 3 votes... That same amount of "So many" Is the same "So many" as the ones without 3 tabs
