: Not to interrupt your little tete-a-tete, here, guys, but I think that tabs, while they are somewhat useful, are even more destructive. A couple of years ago when I first started playing, I would learn by ear, and then I moved on to learning by tab. However, unless I already knew the song halfway by ear anyway, I coulnd't get the phrasing or anything. You CAN'T sightread tab. Now, I've switched to learning notation. I know all the notes, because I play several other instruments, but now I have to relearn which fret and which string is which note, etc. I wish I had started out this way, and for any beginner, I urge you to start out that way too.
