    You've got to be kidding me...


    So, does this mean that the tab/chord sites I check out, are actually illegal?
    What about covering a song at a bar...is that illegal now too?

    I fucking hate the Rolling Stones more AND MORE...

    Yeah the music industry and people who put out tab books have been trying to crack down on guitar tablature sites for years...Thats why I believe OLGA is no more... Instructional vids are the same deal. I'm pretty sure they need permission from whoever owns the rights to use their songs....My bass player's dad wrote Rock Guitar for Dummies and I believe has a few instructional vids out. I'll ask him next time I see him

    As far as bars/clubs go, I think legally they have to pay a fee to ASCAP or some other organization if they have cover bands.....But I doubt most clubs pay this...
