My Take on TAB!

TAB, short for tablature

Wikipedia states: "An alternate usage of the word "tab" is common on the Internet, where it can also refer to conventional chord symbols (for harmony), or note names (for melody)."

(Curt Sheller) This a departure from what has been traditionally known as TAB. There's a lot of sites on the Internet, especially ukulele sites popping up that claim to be TAB sites. These are mostly sites with the chords and lyrics to songs, with or without chord diagrams. Not really “TAB”, but I guess we’re stuck with an expansion of the definition of TAB.

I don't have anything against TAB. It is useful tool I use with beginning students for getting a start learning an instrument such as the ukulele, guitar, banjo, etc... It definitely gets you learning the songs you like and already know and like. However that is actually one of its major drawbacks, you need to know the song already. It also has several long term drawbacks. Checkout my lesson on The Trouble with TAB! for more information.
