I'm working thru GF1 and have not been able to print the tab for Ode to Joy (32 measure version) or Hickory Ridge. In the print preview I get this message... "This is a licensed song and we are not able to offer notation printing". In the tutorial for Ode to Joy 1&2 Lisa suggests printing it out so the whole thing can be seen & followed. I messaged Lisa and she suggested notifying Admin... hope this is the right place.

Thanks in advance for looking into this.

It'll be faster if you click on "Contact Us" at the bottom of this page and then let 'em know what the problem is.

Good luck.

"This is a licensed song and we are not able to offer notation printing".

Copyright issues. Some of the videos attempt to address this by showing the music on the video so we can follow along. I also noticed that some of the sheet music automatically scrolls through with the video, but I can't figure out the magic formula that makes this scrolling feature work for all applications. Scrolling and video graphics are good for learning while watching but do not allow us to be independent of the website. Would be nice to be able to play the songs without having to log into the Internet to see the sheet music. Buying sheet music from other sources is a mixed bag; it seems that the GT versions are in different keys and arrangments than the versions we can buy over the counter.

A suggestion: Guitar Tricks songbooks that provide GT arrangements by genre and skill level. In addition to selling them here, the songbooks could be distributed through standard channels, serving as marketing pieces that bring others back to GT.

Hi there,

Just as you said, our song lessons are licensed and that means printing and downloading is not permitted. There's not much we can do about that at the moment.

But!

In regards to auto-scrolling. Some of the song lessons have this and they're only available on the Performance and Jam Along sections. We're currently actively working on making more songs feature this. Thanks for the feedback!

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact us.

This doesn't just apply to regular songs though - for instance I recall going through GF1 and having Lisa encourage me to print out the tab resource for her own copyright music to follow along easier... only to find that it was blocked. Perhaps it's something done for all tab on the GT site?

As a side note, I like the idea of a GT songbook. Spiral bound, so it can be laid out flat (why oh why is this a challenge for songbook writers, I don't know). I wonder what the licensing would look like around that, and what cost it would need to be to break even? Would GT be interested if the demand was there?
