Talk:Tab Squad

From This Might Be A Wiki

A few of these songs (such as On Earth My Nina) don't feature guitar. >_> -CapitalQtalk ♪ 17:11, 3 Jun 2006 (CDT)

This isn't for guitar parts, but just if you wanted to accompany yourself of the guitar (or any instrument that can play chords, really). For example, We've Got A World That Swings has two guitar tabs, but the song is mostly on piano. -AtionSong 17:37, 3 Jun 2006 (CDT)
I persionally use guitar tabs to play along with songs on my accordion. -Cody-schmidt
I do too. I think "Guitar Tabs" is misleading. Perhaps we should consider changing it to something more general, like "Chords"? -Cronny
Well they're not always just chords.
I don't think "Guitar Tabs" is misleading. After all, you can play it on the guitar. But if you do change it to something more general like "Tabs/Chords", you could put all of the tabs on that song's page including guitar, bass, piano/accordion, and ...drums. --badqueso 15:29, 4 Jun 2006 (CDT)
Me likes this idea -Cody-schmidt
Im not for that idea. The guitar/keys/accordion & bass & drums tabs may as well be 3 seperate pages. I think the only thing that may be considered "misleading", or more appropriately "inaccurate", is that the guitar tab pages arent always for the guitar, but often the keyboard or accordion. If we really need some name to generalise these three melodic insruments, we could just call it "treble notation", but I think that sounds a bit cocky. I personally think "guitar tabs" is fine. It generalises things. --AnklePants 19:10, 5 Jun 2006 (CDT)
Or we could differentiate between guitar tabs and chords - not all tabs actually have chords in the article, so it's not immediately obvious to someone who plays an instrument other than guitar if the "Guitar Tab" page will help them (i.e. have chords.) --Random

We need bass tabs!!--tehbagel ( o ) 17:35, 3 Jun 2006 (CDT)

And what about the few songs that dont feature any harmonies at all and just a rhythm section (maybe even no bass) ie Spider? --AnklePants 00:02, 4 Jun 2006 (CDT)

These can be removed. Like I said, I just took a bunch of things listed as songs with no links to a guitar tab. Anything without melody can be removed. -AtionSong

Thanks CapitalQ for your work on formatting this page up, especially with fixing all the spelling errors creating guitar tabs in the wrong place (Boat of Car took me ages to clean up the mistake). You asked if placing the 'Download' links next to the song names was good idea. Personally I dont like it, and i think it clutters the page, and in a way is pretty unnecissary. Just my two cents --AnklePants 10:29, 4 Jun 2006 (CDT)

Alrighty Tab crew. Project is coming along very nicely. I think as we press forward in our tabulature adventures, someone with the know-how should create Tab Squad babel for our userpages. Opinions?--AnklePants 07:18, 7 Jun 2006 (MDT)

I think this has been brought up earlier, but you guys should (try to) include bass tabs as well, i know there's a few songs of which i have been looking for their bass tabs.--Josherz 02:25, 23 December 2006 (UTC)


Is this still an active project? I'd love the tabs for Hell Hotel. -thevince 23 September 2011

Is there actually much guitar in Hell Hotel? I thought it was mostly just synthy/accordion/organ stuff. But you can totally check out those spiffy bass tabs (and the 83 demo) I did. There's some guitar-y stuff going on during the chorus and playing B E / B F (two measure per line, each B is a measure and a half) on the parts of the chorus besides "wel-wel-wel-welcome to hell hotel etc" (those parts may or may not go B D F E Ebm E / F) works fine. But I just worked that out on the ukulele so maybe it's wrong? DISCLAIMER: i know nothing about music so this is probably all wrong -Apollo (colloquia!) 18:31, 23 September 2011 (EDT)


I would be happy to help out with TMBG songs and the more involved arrangements of the songs. I am a composer/pianist/arranger who has perfect pitch (not trying to brag) that would be happy to help.
