Our Authors' are saying
Malcolm Hartley
When I just started playing guitar I remeber myself looking all over the Internet for "Emptyself - The Open Landscape" but couldn't find it anywhere. So, I just decided to create a tab myself and submit it to UG. It was my first time I submitted a tab to the service and it was so easy. Now, I just add tabs to the library whenever I feel like it!
Lorenzo Benedetti
What I like most about submitting tabs to UG is that every time you do it you get lots of positive feedback from users. I remember a guy who wanted to play a tab I submitted at his wedding so badly that he still thanks me for it.
Olivier Barbeau
I played my first tabs on UG back in 2005. Now there're more than 600 tabs which I submitted to the library and I have more than one million views on these.
