  1. Surely this member and their charts should be reported to the moderators. Deliberately posting rubbish is detrimental to the credibility of the whole site. On the other hand, I've come across a couple of charts that are way off, but I've just made encouraging comments in the hope that the charter will fix them and do better next time. Coldrampage has made some good suggestions as usual.
  2. Update. Just a bit more info to save you the hassle of trying. I tried loading an Ultimate Guitar "Official" gp5 on Firefox under Arch Linux. No download button. I then tried UG Downloader for Firefox. Result: Same old old Access Denied error. So changing Operating System and browser made no difference. So my subscription to UG is looking decidedly fragile.
  3. Thanks for the response, CrackerJack. Yes, I suppose one could reduce the anal pain of a rewrite by downloading the best submitted version and make any improvements by hand from viewing the "Official" version, if any. I've noticed they mostly don't do these supposedly "Official" versions until they've got a pretty good .gpx submitted by somebody else, which they then make improvements to and post as "Official". Charting CDLC is a tedious process and I would have thought paying my $ would have allowed me to skip this step but... sigh. Songsterr is a good alternative if the tab exists there. I somehow find myself looking for obscure material that hasn't got there yet. UG has snowballed into having a pretty wide range in recent years which is what sucked me in. gprotab.net is pretty good, mostly for old stuff too. Btw. It seems like the no download button thing on UG has been applied gradually to different members rather than all at once as others seemed to complain years before it happened to me. It would be interesting to see how other charters have reacted to this problem. Maybe they give you a year or two before you get the chop. I'm still hopeful that UG downloader or something like it will upgrade to overcome the problem.
  4. No doubt many of our Charters have parted with their hard earned $ to gain Ultimate Guitar's "Pro" membership and gain access to their "Official" tabs for purposes of charting CDLC, as did I several years ago. Some months ago I discovered that the "Download" button had disappeared from these "Official" charts. UG now claim that we were never supposed to be able to download "Official" tabs and if we did it was caused by a bug. I tried the nifty Chrome extension UG Downloader, but that leads to an Access denied page for "Official" Tabs now. So before I cancel my UG membership, I'm asking, has anyone found a workaround for downloading these "Official" tabs (for which I have already paid )? I don't mind paying, I just like to get what I paid for.
  5. I'm not a bass player, but this one sounds better to me than UG: https://www.songsterr.com/a/wsa/black-sabbath-megalomania-bass-tab-s26946t6 Other guitar parts are ok too.
  6. Had another listen, and yeah. I wonder if he's in the wrong mode or scale or something, eg like he didn't flatten the third or whatever. I don't know the song well enough to suggest any more than that.
  7. I assume you have downloaded this, but just in case you missed it. https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/tab/black-sabbath/megalomania-guitar-pro-1445571 It may not be the performance you are interested in doing but it might help. Seemed like a pretty good tab to me, except it's missing some of the ad lib at the end.
  8. Hey arrov. Just a suggestion. You might like to make a list of which sub menus in Eof are useful + what they do. I almost only use the Rocksmith ones, thinking that the others are for GH etc. but you have show you can use Pro-guitar and maybe others, I didn't know about. I've ignored most sub menu choices think they wouldn't work for RS.
  9. Ah. Right. That's another thing I used to do note by note in Guitar Pro first. Again very tedious.
  10. Thanks arrov. I love this bit on handshapes. I've never been able to make it work before and always did it note by note which is very tedious and doesn't work near as well.
  11. Looks great arrov. Nice illustrations. I could be wrong, but I think FHP is just a way of creating a camera view and that's why I always caused errors when I tried to specify where to put your hand and now I always use "generate".
  12. Hey swanny,

    Hope you didn't mind my little crack about the North East accent.  I love that video and the guy's accent. I think it's geordie or somewhere near Newcastle. It seems so strong to me from Oz but you probably hardly notice it. Anyhow, no offence meant.  




  13. You might like to add that lots of lyric websites are nowhere near as accurate as you might expect and they leave out words, choruses and verses especially if they are repeated. The also have some laughable mondegreens (like "dressed up like a douche") at times and often omit the ad lib vocal parts you often get in an Outro etc. So it's worth checking before you go tapping it out. I usually visit a couple of lyric sites and compare. just a couple of cents worth.
  14. Well done, and yeah. It's a PIA for what it's worth. It's designed for accurate karaoke creation which we don't really need. I usually just rough it out in Ultrastar and then drag the lyrics about in EoF to make them fit better. Many of the songs I've done have got too many words to fit in writing over the notes anyhow. I figure it's nice to have the words there, but nobody is going to worry if they don't fit spot on the note. It's not a singing game. Also I find it's good to a lyric chart just to keep track of where you are in the song, when adding those fill in licks etc.
  15. That would account for maybe a dozen, let's say 100. Right now there's 355! They must be hacker bots looking someone's who stored there bank account password here. They didn't. I hope!
