As a die-hard Dave Matthews Band fan, I was inspired to learn how to play the guitar in my early teens. I tried to model Dave in my playing and practiced every song in Dave's catalogue. Fortunately, resources to learn how to play DMB songs were available on the internet. The DMB community always figured out how to play DMB songs and there were some great sites that made the tabs easy to find. However, many of these sites were not maintained and eventually became out-of-date. The community was still tabbing out songs, but all of the tabs could no longer be found online on one site. After considering it for some time, I decided to build a site that would be updated continuously, be user-friendly, and could teach anyone who wanted to play DMB songs on the guitar. This site is an ongoing project and I plan to make improvements on a regular basis so that those who want to learn how to play the guitar, how to play DMB songs, or play "like" Dave will have all the tools that they need.
Importantly, I want to credit and thank J Kanter of DMBtabs and the rest of the DMBtabs crew. They were the first to go out and make an accurate and organized site to learn DMB tabs. I understand the tremendous amount of time and effort that it takes to create a guitar tablature site and can not thank them enough. I--along with everyone else in the community--am grateful for everything J Kanter and the DMBtabs crew have done. Over the years, when updates stopped coming to DMBtabs, some fans took it amongst themselves to make accurate tabs and post them on various sites online. However, these tabs were scattered all over the internet. The goal of DaveTabs is to have all of the DMB tabs on one organized and maintained site so that anyone can easily find any DMB song and learn how to play it on the guitar. Thanks to all who have contributed tabs either on this site or other sites. A special thanks to ‘younevrknow41’ who is responsible for many of the Big Whiskey tabs on DaveTabs.
Thank you to everyone who has helped DaveTabs get to this point and who continue to help move this site forward!
