About

The Past The well-known transcription community around powertabs.net has been closed by the MPA on behalf of a large British music book seller. The main aim of the community has always been to be an educative resource for guitarists and musicians. However, we do respect the final decision of music publishers, who argue that our resource might have been abused for non-educative purposes too, i.e. a blatant ripping of their works, so we immediately followed their decision to close powertabs.net for good.

The Future Of course, nothing should stop our mission to make sure, that there is at least one transcription community on the world wide web, which provides (a) a certification stamp for highest level of quality tablature, (b) transcription education for all levels of musicianship, and (c) convenient, controlled ways for transcribers to get feedback on their transcription efforts from musicians all over the world. The future will definitely look completely different than the past, as there will be no files available anymore, but who knows, whether the change won’t end up in a refresh of our community, which might be even more enjoyable, and maybe even closer to our ultimate goal - creating a transcription community as good as it can get.

Be prepared for more information during the next couple of days!

Re: powertabs.net

Sounds more cryptic than my Granmother, but I think that it was wrong that it was closed down. I hope that this message means that they are going to sort it all out and put it back online again!

Re: powertabs.net

I would like to add that if the MPA was serious about "protecting" artist, then proper accurate tabs would be available.

I would be happy to pay a modest fee to get proper tabs in Guitar Pro/Powertabs format. However just like with file sharing, the music industry chooses to stick it's head in the sand and punish the very consumers that sustain it.

Re: powertabs.net

thats why i always thought these sites could stay open, because they arnt publising official tabs, they are showing peoples interpretations whether they are right or wrong.
