Tablature: Mudcat Tabies

I believe there is a need for Mudcat to develop a thread for guitar tab. What do you other Mudcatters think?

1. I think your thread title is unfortunate. I don't think it's one that would get much attention from many seriously interested in guitar tab. To me, it reads like you are requesting the tune to a song written by a "Mudcatter" about felines.

2. There have been past threads on tab, including showing it here and using software to produce it. Have you checked through what there already is?

3. As suggested by Michaelr, it would be helpful if you could expand a little on what you have in mind.

Hi, Peter - I made a group of all the unassociated TAB threads we've had - you'll find them all listed up top for now. I did not include threads on tab for individual songs or individual performaers. You'll find lots of them by putting TAB in the filter and setting the age back.
I see that a lot of the thread titles are too broad - I suppose a lot of people don't realize that there is so much information available. I suppose they also don't realize that tablature is written for instruments other than guitar.
Sooner or later, I'll break this group up into more manageable categories, but I thought it would be fun to leave it as-is for a while. There certainly is a lot of marvelous information there.

Well then, how 'bout Tabsters? Or Guitar Tabs? GuiTabs? Dare I say the obvious---Fangerpickers' Tabs.
Prithee, Dr. Guitar, art thou out there in mudville and willing to bring order to the chaos of this thread?

Here is a link to a tablature template I made a while back. If people would like to post tabs and don't have a program that generates them, this template makes a nice looking page.
