I know drums tabs are hard to find for free now, but does anyone know of a site that has them? If not, can anyone help me with the song "Burn" by The Cure? My band wants to cover that song and I don't know what the hell is being played. Thanks a lot!

in my opinion tabs can only lead you so far. try listenin to the music and seeing how you can replicate on your own kit.

Isn't that site being sued for copyright infringment or some shit? I haven't been there in a while and I can't get to it from work but when they were still up that had all kinds of good shit on there.

if what you're writing is true than it's a shame... it was/is IMHO the best drum tab site in the whole Internet

I`ve never used tabs. Hell, I can`t even read them. I`ve always played by ear. I`ve never covered a song beat for beat either. I have fun figuring out tunes and putting my own flair to them.

Seriously?? You guys are kidding right? If you can put in the effort to read drum tabs, really how much more difficult would it be to learn how to read drum music? None...once you learn the value of the notes it not much different. The person who invented drum tabs should have bamboo shoots rammed under his finger nails.

that last post has a point, i didn't know drum tab existed before this topic i thought you were talking about drum sheet music. So i checked out one of the links and there is pretty much no difference between the two.
And to the people who went why dont you just listen to it, well you could spend ages listening to a track again and again till you get it right or you can just read it and get the song sorted in one go.

I don't get tabs, they seem like a crappy version of drum notation.

i agree with this statement. i would also say to use real music rather than tabs.
