Scored music

Can we upload GuitarPro tabs/scores in some way? Love that program.

If we're going to have "tabs", then I think we should have scores too. Is there any way of us (aside from using SVG graphics or PNG images), of us displaying them?

(note: I hate tabs. People should learn to read music :@)--Tene 23:29, 26 July 2006 (BST)

Matt Bellamy can only vaguely read scored music, yet he's a musical genious. -- Rock-On-Josh 20:58, 5 February 2008 (GMT)

Perhaps use certain music files to display the music (such as midi), people can download and upload changes towards it? Dont think you can generate scores for the songs and all. --crazybobbles 00:24, 27 July 2006 (BST)

can we add different categories for bass and guitar (piano)?

Seems to be quite a problem with people ignoring "Please do not upload scans of the official music". The following songs have scans of official scores:
Cave
Citizen Erased
Darkshines
Escape
Falling Down
Feeling Good
Fillip
Hyper Music
Megalomania
Micro Cuts
Muscle Museum
I will upload ACSII tabs of all these songs in the near future (Next week or so, but the images need to be removed.--Frozenjakalope 09:43, 8 March 2007 (GMT)

Piano

Can we have a piano tab section?

Just a suggestion

What exactly is "piano tab"? / Time Q 17:15, 21 December 2007 (GMT)

Unknown Riff Tab

Does anyone know of a tab for the unknown riff just before Butterflies And Hurricanes at Glastonbury 2004?

I just had a go at tabbing it for you, couldn't get the second part though. Riffs and Jams (tablature)#Glastonbury_Riff

Alternative to List

I'm not sure why this hasn't been brought up (maybe it has?) but Frozenjakalope has a great alternative to the list format: User:Frozenjakalope/Tablature ... 7 00:33, 20 June 2008 (BST)

I mentioned it on Tene's talk page and, at his suggestion, the community portal, but I just assumed none of the sysops who can actually change the sidebar links saw it, or if they did see it, I assume they didn't it. On the subject of the sidebar, why doesn't Songs link to the anthology? It looks so much neater than the category page -frozenjakalope 00:51, 20 June 2008 (BST)
We only have one (maybe two) active admin(s), which is of couse, Tene, but he seems too busy to deal with our stuff... Hmm... come to think of it, I'm pretty sure 'Bobbles said something about granting me sysops rights, but I guess he never got around to it... and if we had even one more active admin around here, we could get things like this done a lot faster... ack! now I feel like a douche-bag... But I digress... you know what? Enough talk. 7 06:51, 20 June 2008 (BST)
That's one way of doing it, I guess =D -frozenjakalope 12:48, 20 June 2008 (BST)
On your suggestion about the Songs link on the sidebar, I sent Susurr0 a message about linking that to the Song Anthology. Hopefully, he will help! :D 7 21:48, 20 June 2008 (BST)

I want to brek free

Anyone can tab this riff please ? I love it !

Resistance B-Sides

Should we merge the tabs for Popcorn and Who Knows Who (Heartbreaker) from the Riffs and Jams Tabulature section with here? --Muserism 02:49, 20 February 2010 (GMT)

Okay, I copied the tab for popcorn from the riffa and jams section to the popcorn tab page, but I've left it there still. --Muserism 13:30, 2 March 2010 (GMT)

Section for Tab books.

Maybe we should have a section for the official tab books, not uploads just information on them. I noteiced several interesting things about the official tab books: -The track order is wrong for the Showbiz, OOS and Hullabaloo tab books -In the Hullabaloo book it says Citizen Erased was performed with a Seven string Mansun guitar, instead of a Manson guitar. Spelling mistake? -No referances to use of Fuzz factory or Kaoss pads.

I think a directory of official tab books is a good idea. Was it ever implemented?

Bass tabs

We seem to have a mix of things going on with bass tabs, eg bass tabs added as a separate section in the guitar tab page, bass tabs incorporated into the guitar tab, or none at all. I would like to suggest the following:

  1. Complete bass tab, ie full song, to have its own page (with a link in the tab list)
  2. Tab snippets (ie not the full song, perhaps just a riff, etc) to go in a separate section on the main guitar tab page, preferably at the bottom of the guitar tab page (which is pretty much what has been done to date).

There is already some discussion about this on the Talk:Uprising_(tablature) page. Musewiki is an amazing resource and it would be great to make it even better!
