Hi, I'm John. I used to run a TMBG at the Bowery website, but haven't updated in a long time since life changes have caused me to fall out of the TMBG loop. I used to hinge on every single new word from the band, but I've grown up a little, and now I have 2 sons, one who has been to three shows already! So, I've changed my priorities just a bit.

Still, I'm happy to help here, particularly with the guitar tabs. I had fun trying to figure out songs like Fingertips, My Evil Twin, Dr. Worm, and Hopeless Bleak Despair that have never been tabbed. And this page is the best page for finding TMBG Guitar Tabs. I even made my own TMBG songbook that I got signed by John & John (And Linnell was quite impressed with its accuracy). And thank you to whoever posted all of the Spine guitar tabs. I thought I was going to have to do those all myself.

If there are any other major songs that still need to be figured out (Nothing that would NEVER get played out anywhere, like an obscure Dial-A-Song or orther short thrown-together ditties), do let me know.
