Sorry if I offended you Southpaw - I think as a result you assumed a lot about my post.
Let me add a preface - I think Chordie is great! Of all the similar sites out there Chordie has been my "go to" when I want to learn a song. I've been using it for years. I've even clicked on some ads, and bought something once.
If you read my post it says "As a site user" when I refer to wasting time. It is the post of a frustrated user. Also, my point has nothing to do with whether or not Chordie should have more tablature or not. The point is that IF something is labeled TAB, then it would be great to actually get a tablature when you click on it. THAT is my opinion, and I think that many of the 294,721 other members would agree.
Seems like something could be done to encourage that new songs added would be labeled correctly.
As far as the existing archive goes, if it were possible to remove the TAB designation from chord charts, then members who care about this kind of thing could do it as they visit, along with editors.
Thanks for reading,
