This is a bit off-topic, but explains my sparce posting on here lately. I’ve been working on a new resource for church worship leaders, and it’s just about ready to go — Tabs For Worship.
It’s somewhat similar to the other guitar tab sites out there, but with a few key differences:
- Less “stuff”, just music. No CD reviews, no online store, no concert listings, etc.
- A vastly streamlined database structure. So many artists cover the same song that the current structure of tab sites simply doesn’t make sense. For example, we already show six different artists for “Here I Am To Worship“, and I’m sure there are more out there. On most sites, you’d have to look under each artist’s section to see what tabs they have for each one, then decide on the best. With TFW, they all point to the same page, giving you quick access to every version of the song that has been submitted to the site. More about our database layout can be found here.
- No separation of “praise” music from the main database. On most other sites, there is a “guitar/Christian” section, and then a “praise/worship” section. Why? We have it all in one database, with the artists, songs and albums extensively cross-linked so you can browse quickly.
- A clean, fast mobile site. This won’t be of great value on a regular basis, but could be essential in a crunch. Maybe you can’t remember the bridge to a certain song — just pull up the mobile site, find the song you want, view the tabs, and get on with it.
- No registration required, and certainly no payment required. Many (but not all) sites require you to log-in before you can view the songs, and some even require payment. Not us. We want to help you find your information as quickly as possible, and registration is simply a barrier to that. Of course, if you’d like to stick around we certainly encourage you to register and join our forums, but that’s definately not required.
