Why?

Problem Guitar TAB on the internet has a long history of legal issues surrounding it.

Solution The main goal of Guitar.Monster's TAB app is allow people to freely create, view and share TAB sources for educational and creative purposes.

The actual TABs are not shared. What is shared is a special plain text format called GuitarTabScript.

Guitar.Monster TABs App is a GuitarTabScript editor and viewer.

GuitarTabScript outputs the TAB to the screen when viewed in the app.

The intent is not to promote copyright infringement but rather shift liability from hosts to tab creators.

The GuitarTabScript is not TAB and therefore can be hosted anywhere!

The Internet acts as a distributed database for GuitarTabScript (not TAB).
