Sharing music sheets/tabs
« on: October 15, 2017, 06:34:41 PM »
I'm a guitar player (just for hobby) and I would like to have a section to share all or discuss the tabs. The best or variations can be edited in the first post. Maybe the best thing is to lock an upper thread which contains all songs tabbed and on which instrument. I really don't know if it will work, but I missed it on the other forum. https://www.u2station.com/tablature/ is a similar site, but it is not possible to discuss the tabs or make the best one. Maybe other players can help with the idea of the section?

Thanks for the suggestion, guys! I've set up a Playing U2 forum where we can discuss playing their music/sharing tabs.

Hi! Again, thanks for the board. I don't want to play a moderator ;), but here some thought for guidelines to make the board work for the best. Before making a thread in the board, I'd like to hear some feedback.

There should be two pinned threads in this board: main thread and Guidelines. I've tried to make some guidelines.

If more comes to my mind, I'll write it down.

I'd like to hear what you think. :D (If you see typos and/or bad sentences, please fix them)

Hi all wannabe Edges, Adams and Larrys,

This board is meant to be a place to share thoughts on tabs of songs from U2. This could be finetuning a already made tab or to work together to make tabs for songs which are bad documented on the internet. There should be a main thread and (many) song threads Some guidelines:

Main thread
This topic (or another topic) could be pinned above this board. In the original post of that thread can songs be placed which are tabbed inclusive a link to the post in the song thread. This can be for guitar and bass and even for piano and drums (If you are ambitious make some for the harmonica, haha), for the last two I don't know how that exactly works. For example:

Quote
New Years Day - guitar:
[link]
New Years Day - bass:
[link]
New Years Day - drums:
[link]
New Years Day - piano:
[link]
New Years Day (live - ZooTV):
[link]

Song threads

The tabs of a specific song can be discussed in these threads. The Original Poster (OP) could update it's first post when a tab is made/modified. If that's not possible or necessary, there could be a link to the post with the best tabs.

If you want to discus a live version of a song, please make a new song thread.

Probably there are bunches of tabs on the internet, and you have a question about one riff. Search or the song thread or make a new thread and try to put the rest of the song in that thread, too.

Font

With this font all characters uses equal space.

E|--------------|----18------|
B|--------------|-------17---|
G|-------10-----|-16---------|
D|----11----12--|------------|
E|-10-----------|------------|

(Could be a good riff - I don't know)

It could help to write your tab in notepad first


Sources
A lot of information can be found elsewhere. It's probably okay to copy it, but provide a name and link to the tab or tutorial video if possible.

I'm a piano player and can post piano chord charts for numerous U2 songs that I like to play.  Unfortunately, I do not know tabs.

At some point I would like to YouTube playing some of these tunes and post them on that board as tutorials.

It could be nice. Lots of people  who plays a little will like it, I think. People can discuss the chords, to fix problems.

I hope the forum will grow fast, the better this board will work.

No complaints here!
I wish I knew how to lend a hand but honestly have no skills in the technology dept.
