Does anyone know a good site to find TAB music for various songs. I'm looking for a free site that will allow me to print off the bass lines in TAB so i can learn to play the songs.

Thanks in Advance

Grant

I've never seen one that could be considered good. Half the time it's wrong anyway.

I agree with Matt, the process I use, is first check out some tab sites (see below) then look at some youtube videos, then listen to the song. Depending on the song you will find some errors but you can pick up some good tips and get the gist of the song but you will need to determine what is right and what is wrong. In some cases it is easier to just learn the song by ear.

Lastly years ago I wanted to learn the guitar riff to the one hit wonder "Time Won't Let Me", there is a youtube video by an old Doctor who has a really cool old guitar. After a few minutes you realize he was the guitarist with this band when they had the hit. He rode the one hit wonder wave then finished his education.

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com has a pretty extensive selection that seems to be accurate most of the time.

For some reason, you have to sign in to view or download tabs on mobile, but not on the desktop site. So, I always use the desktop site, even on my phone.

Went and watched this, then clicked on a video of the original tune - what a great, classic song! Got to add it to my band's songlist!
