Man, sometimes I wish I could, as the Creator can, speak things into existence. Can't do it though, and as a result I'm only now getting back into shape, banjo-pickin' wise.
This afternoon though, I wanted to weigh in, once again, on the tab versus no tab thing. I've stated before in various places about the Hangout that I think learning to play is mostly about training the ear and that any medium that helps you do that is a good thing.
With tab, I can pick up things in an hour or so that might have taken me a week to try and learn from the audio file. I'm not saying that learning things off "records" isn't important. On the contrary, if one could only learn tunes one way, then I'd think records would more fun and in the end perhaps more productive. We don't live in an all or nothing world though.
I for one think tab is a mighty cool step-saver. That's it.
