: : please, anyone out there, who knows where i can find bass tablature on 80's metal groups such as warrant, skid row, dokken, etc. The bass tab archive does not have such groups, very frustrating to me, that is what i love playing, thanx to anyone who can possibly help me with this,

: Tabs are the difference between being a musician and being a mechanic.

Oh, puhleese!!!!
Not more anti-tabs snobbery..... it is another way of communicating the notes to a player - nothing more, nothing less. Should a player learn to read notation? absolutely. What a player does with the notes he learns (whether by ear, tabs or reading notation) is what determines his musicianship. The best bassist I have ever heard can hardly read a lick, but he works danged hard to incorporate everything he learns (which is mostly by ear).
I do not use tablature as a rule, but I know great players who do. It is means to an end, nothing more.
