Welcome to jrock_tabs!

This is a place where you can share and talk about J-ROCK guitar and bass tablatures. However, J-POP and Japanese scores (i.e. to the Final Fantasy games, or a Miyazaki film) are also allowed, as are sheet music/tabs for other instruments - piano, voice, drums, violin, etc.

1.) Put all guitar and bass tablatures and any sheet music behind a cut. When posting a .txt tab, please put it between < PRE > and < /PRE >.
2.) Piano/orchestral versions of songs are allowed. Tabs don't have to be complete before you post them. In fact, this is a place you can come to get help if you get stuck with a tab, so don't be afraid to ask!
3.) Please clearly state the name of the artist/songwriter and song of each tab. Don't forget to credit the tabber also, if you did not tab out the song.
4.) You may request tablatures, but please check the community directory and the more up-to-date tags list before requesting, and see the section below for further guidelines.
5.) Of course, you may discuss J-ROCK/POP/scores, J-ROCK/POP artists/composers, and guitar/bass playing in general. ^^
6.) You may advertise other communities, but don't go crazy with it.
7.) Treat the other members of the community with respect. No bashing!
8.) Tabbing takes a lot of time. Please remember to thank the tabbers if you download a tab they post (especially if it's a new post)!

CHECK THE DIRECTORY/TAGS LIST before you request a tab. Sometimes, we'll already have it uploaded. ;)

Aside from the obvious (artist name, song, specific parts wanted - if any), when posting requests, please include a bribe of some sort (a partial/full tab, .mp3 download, etc.). See this post for more details.

Tabs are tagged with: artist: [artist] and song: [first letter] (There are some exceptions to this with the more popular bands - please go for details)
Covers are tagged with: = covers: [artist]
Band ads (looking for collaborators, band members, a band, someone to practice with, etc.) are tagged with: *band ads
Requests are tagged with: request

For more on the tags list, go here. Right now, community members can use existing tags but not create new ones. Don't worry if you don't/can't tag your post - the mods will do it for you. :)
