Holy Fudge, no more MxTabs?!?!

I have completely lost my faith in the music industry... first lyrics were taboo, and now tablature... stupid money grubbing whore mongers...

Oh well, I guess it's back to Ultimate Guitar for me then...

Until next time, I guess...

LOL, I just found that out today too man. That sucks. Then I told Jamieson that and he was all like "Geez Kyle, they did that months ago (oh and I'm a bitch)."

Well ok that sentance might not be entirely accurate as I don't know the exact phrasing of the first part.

But note that they said "To this date, we have not received any threatening letters, but are closing on our own volition."

So I don't exactly buy the story that it's the music industry shutting them down.

Basically what happened was that they shut down as an act of good faith and lost a whole bunch of visitors. When they brought it back up, the demand wasn't close to as high and the site effectively died.

I still post on Musician's Forums regularly, so that's the story I got off there.

"Mxtabs was reopened in February with the hope of receiving some sort of response; with the lack of that response, it is sadly time to close."

Sounds about right... I'm thinking the "over $3000 per month in sales" of sheet music significantly declined when they reopened. I mean, what were they hoping for, sales to increase to $10k, and thus convincing the companies to reconsider liscencing?
