I have been using the site guitaretab.com to play the chords from songs, but the legal status of the site is dubious. I think much of the content on the site is illegal copies of copyrighted material. Is it sinful to continue learning songs from this website?
If you suspect that the site is flouncing the copyright, don’t use it. It is a form of stealing.
My philosophy is:
Don’t worry about it unless you know something is illegal. There is plenty of copyright protection built into the internet so that anything that is not legal can be shut down.
aren’t we stealing all the time (without even noticing it)? Even Youtube videos could sometimes be a form of stealing, I guess…
btw, ever heard of perfect pitch?..
