I’ve read many posts and there seems to be a lot of people complaining about no Tabs with the DVD and Online lessons. The rational provided by Lick Library for No Tabs seems to be that there are copywrite and licensing issues that prohibit Lick Library from including tabs with their DVDs and Online Lessons.
Even though I’m not happy that the "Learn to Play" and "Jam With" DVD Lessons don’t come with Tab… I can’t deny the fact that Lick Library does provide a high quality instructional product.
However, I’m not buying any more products from Lick Library because of the "NO TABS" issue. Nevertheless, I still keep coming back to check out what new products do have Tabs. So far there are at least 5 products I would love to buy from Lick Library, but won’t buy because they don’t have Tabs: They are… • Danny Gill’s Blue’s Licks • Danny Gill’s Blues Guitar • Steve Trovato’s Quick Licks (Chuck Berry Key of A) • Danny Gill’s Quick Licks (Jimi Hendrix Key of B) • Danny Gill’s Quick Licks (Gary Moore Key of E)
I’m just curious… the 5 DVD Lessons above don’t come with Tab because Danny Gill and Steve Trovato won’t allow Lick Library to include Tabs with their DVD lessons?
I don’t think there should be any copywrite and/or licensing issues for Danny Gill’s lessons because he wrote the Blues Licks and he is the owner of them. I don’t think there should be any copywrite and/or licensing issues for the Quick Licks videos because they are not Note-for-Note transcriptions from copywritted material. They are “in the style of” lessons that shouldn't infringe upon any copywrite and/or licensing issues.
Are there any plans to include tab for the 5 lessons above?
As stated earlier Lick Library does provide a high quality product.
By the way… I love Lick Library and I hate Lick Library.
I love Lick Library because • The videos and instructors are clear and straight to the point • The Jam Tracks are high quality stuff • The DVD lessons and Online Lessons appear to be the fastest way to learn a lot of songs in a short amount of time
I hate Lick Library because • There is no tab
I purchased the 2 Jam With Hendrix DVDs and a couple of Online Hendrix Lessons because the description said “The hugely popular Jam with Book and CD Series has now been updated to a 2 DVD+CD format” with Note-for-Note transcriptions. I was shocked to find out that no tab is available and the Jam with Hendrix Books are no longer available from Lick Library. It’s hard to sit at my computer and transcribe a song by hand. It’s not an effective way to quickly learn new songs. I wanted to get a refund, but couldn’t. Oh well… I learned a valuable lesson. That’s why I’m waiting for the tab. But I don’t want to wait any longer for the 5 lessons above.
Are there any plans in the near future to include tab with the 5 lessons above?
