    Good suggestion §ereña... I've been talking to John about this, and we're tying to figure out the best way to set this up and have it layed out... Any input will definately help!

    may be u could lay it out under, say, .....tabs & sheet music, with sub directories of Guitar, Keyboard/Piano, Violin, etc. The music will probably have to be in JPEG, PDF, or ZIP format.....something universal.

    what do u think?

    :cool:

    Great idea §ereña!
    Guys, keep the suggestions coming - John and I are working on this one, and we have not figured out how to set it up exactly.

    Any software needs/issues aside (definately tpearl5s department) - a real-time chat room would be a neat idea provided that there would be more than just a few people (registered members) on-line at one time.

    We have been breaking MIDIBuddy board traffic in the past month or so (Latest is: Most users ever online was 68 on 07-29-2002 at 04:47 PM>>> this info can be found on the "Boards" page)

    As long as we keep breaking records, and there are more than a few MEMBERS (not just 3 members and 65 unregistered guests) online at any given time - and of course, if this feature can easily and (very) inexpensively integrated into vBulletin - it could happen, and I think it would be a neat thing...

    Now, I hope to hear from John with the technical stuff :D

    Sorry for the late reply.. I have done this before and easily integrated a chat room into vBulletin using jIRC. It is very nice and uses your registered name in the chat room. I'll add this if the members and traffic continue to grow :)

    Hmmm I have Mixed emotions on this one...

    There are already two great sites out there doing tabs.

    www.tabcrawler.com

    and www.olga.org

    If our intention is to be a one stop music shop then sure.....

    but i think it would put a heavier load on the moderators....
    an extra request forum to monitor.
    and you thought there were a lot of duplicate midi's out there....check the tab scene out.,

    I have never been a big user of tabs so I can't really see the point in it. On the odd occasion that I have needed a tab...I have just popped up to one of the above sites.

    Oh and as a side note...the fastest way to get the harry fox agency(IE lyrics.ch....who remembers that great site) on your case is to start publishing sheet music...TAB seems to have escaped their wrath.

    My 2 cents worth

    great idea since it's pretty hard to find guitar tabs online.

    Not necessarily st4rube - but it can be hard to find GOOD guitar tabs sometimes...
