Lol I was more getting at the requirements for getting on the top tab list. Being on the site for one year minimum seems a bit much to me. Same goes the needing a minimum amount of votes, but hey maybe I'm wrong on those matters.

But yeah, that's another thing. I don't really think Kabuki's You Were There tab should be on the same list as something like one of Archard's starter tabs. The list itself has some great stuff, but you can't even compare most of them to each other since they're on different levels.

I was thinking maybe incorporate something like Best of all time, monthly, weekly, daily etc. among other ideas, but given how dead this place has been lately it almost seems pointless.

PS: The word "among" just looks weird to me :P

Could there be a sort feature added to the top tabs?

Like if you press the "Top Tabs" menu at the top of the screen you'll be directed to another page where you select the style.

For example, choosing "fingerstyle" will show you the top 50 fingerstyle tabs, instead of all categories combined.

________TOP TABS_________

Pick a style:
- All Time -
2 or more instruments
Alternate picking
Arrangement
Artificial harmonics
Fingerstyle
Natural harmonics
Percussion
Pinch harmonics
Sweep picking
Tapped harmonics
Tapping
Transcription
Tremolo
Trill

- All Time - could be exactly what we have as "Top Tabs" right now.

Yes I know you can go to each

Yes I know you can go to each style and just sort by rating, but that gets you tons....TONS of results.

I like the idea of the tabs being time tested, like they are on the top tabs page.

That probably wouldn't eork as nicely as it sounds since there are tabs that incorporate several different styles.

For example, my Scars of Time tab is both a transcription and an arrangement. Hell sections of it are even arrangements of the arrangement. You get the deal.

I'd be fine if some songs overlapped.

If something were good enough to be in the top 50 fingerstyles and the top 50 arrangements, that would be ok.

Transcriptions and arrangements would be fine too. Compared to what it is now, I don't mind a little overlap.

To be honest, there are still a ton of people visiting the site every day but just don't feel like writing. Or don't know what to write or just don't feel confident enough in the englisch language, but small participation does not mean this place is dead :C

It depends on the song. This one is taking forever, but some of my other stuff worked out really well, and fast.

I think it depends on how many instruments I'm trying to combine into one.

Another road block I seem to find is that half way through the song I'll realize it would be easier in an alternate tuning, or if I put a capo somewhere. Then you have to go back through and completely redo all the work you've already done.

Usually figuring out the key first helps in the capo department, but not always.

The main thing I always try to achieve is adding as many notes as I can to make it sound like the original, but removing enough notes to keep the tune in the front. It's a rough balance to keep.

Another 1/4 of the way done
