Please don’t email me unless you have important business; I check twitter early and often, so it’s probably best you contact me there if you have a question. Comments on a specific post would also be a valid way to reach me.
Hello. I’m Veto. I’m a student, but I like writing music for fun. I also enjoy picking apart other people’s songs; it’s a look into another’s writing process and helps train your ears; which is basically why I started this blog. I was never a band geek
nor was I taught any music theory and I had only 10 weeks of music theory, once. I am a drummer out of habit, but I enjoy sloppily playing the guitar and singing more.
My knowledge of the Japanese language is limited, at best. Even after two and a half years, I’d barely rate myself at an elementary level. Self-study continues.
With that said, should you encounter any errors in tablature, translation, or transcription, please feel free to leave a comment and I’ll look into getting it fixed if corrections need to be made.
All requests for content removal will be begrudgingly honored should the rights holders appear. While I personally don’t see the harm in posting guitar tabs for songs, I can see how some people might take offense to it. Personally, I think a cover is the sincerest form of flattery, but I’m sure there are some pretty bad covers out there…
Using the Tabs:
Tabs are meant to be shared; I built a stockpile of tabs for over a year before creating this site because I was too lazy to make this site, all with the goal in mind to share these tabs. I do not put my name in or on the tabs, but the way they are styled is easy to call out, and a lot of the songs I tab have *ahem* never been done before. I’ll always have the timestamp, baby, so feel free to say you wrote it if you’re so cold-hearted. But a shout out to this site would be nice if you end up covering a song and putting up a youtube video or whatever; I’d love to see your video.
… but if I’ve found you’ve made a horrible “8bit version” of a song using my tab… I don’t even want to think about it.
Why don’t I use Guitar Pro? I used Guitar Pro for a year before I settled on TuxGuitar; while both interfaces are pretty unintuitive for writing music, TuxGuitar has a lot more on-screen shortcuts, which makes it easier to use and thus the lesser of two evils. In addition, TuxGuitar is free, unlike Guitar Pro, which I had pirated to use (years ago; I’ve long since wiped it). As such, all of the tabs I write are in TuxGuitar’s native format, “.tg”. Feel free to convert them to a Guitar Pro file if you want, I guess, but don’t expect me to do it for you.
God forbid you need me to tab out a song for you. I’m just an amateur, after all. If you want me to tab out a song for you, shoot me an email with the song name and a youtube link. I reserve the right to decline a request because:
1) I don’t like the song
2) I don’t think I’d be able to tab it well
3) I’m not being payed
I will trade tabs for music I can’t find, at the rate of 1 tab for a release. You won’t be able to find this stuff with a simple Google search. I reserve the right to refuse your request if the rip quality is bad.
I’m currently looking for:
Shinigiwa Satellite (死際サテライト) x 9bFOX – MORSE EP
Shinigiwa Satellite (死際サテライト) – THE DAY THE WORLD WENT AWAY EP
Shinigiwa Satellite (死際サテライト) - 純潔ロンリネス
I think that’s everything. Thanks for stopping by.
