Paru aujourd'hui sur le site Bassmasta.net, site communautaire de bassistes et de partage de tablatures (95% de celles que j'utilise en proviennent), un billet concernant la fermeture prochaine
du site et de son jumeau à 6 cordes Guitarmasta.net...
"Thereʼs no easy way to say this. After almost a decade of developing this amazing resource for musicians, I have decided that the time of the ‘Masta community has come to an end.
This wasnʼt an easy decision, and itʼs one that Iʼve arrived at after much discussion, meditation, and prayer. Itʼs become more apparent that as a one man shop, I
donʼt have the resources or time to attain the proper licenses that would enable me to deliver the content you love. Fortunately, the good people at Songsterr have generously offered to take the
domains off my hands. Iʼve accepted the offer, and now the future of online tabs and music education rests in their incredibly capable hands.
Iʼve dreamt of creating a community that was safe, educational, and inspiring to enable the next generation of musicians grow in maturity and skill with their
instruments. I believe that the people at Songsterr have the talent, vision, and resources to bring that dream to fruition.
Soon, my urls will begin forwarding to theirs, and Bass/GuitarMasta will be no more. I hope the transition will be a smooth one for you. The important thing for
you is to save any content here that youʼve contributed or that you rely on. Once the lights go out it will be irretrievable.
Iʼve learned so much running the sites, and Iʼve enjoyed my time here with you immensely. Iʼve grown as a musician and designer, and Iʼve learned much about what
it takes to develop a good community. I hope that you have learned as much using the sites as I have from running it.
In once sense, itʼs sad for an amazing period in my life to come to an end. But itʼs with breathless anticipation that I wait to see what life has in store for me
next. I wish you all the best of luck with your music and all your other pursuits. Hereʼs to the future!
The Bass Masta"
Bien que n'ayant pas fait partie de cette communauté, je considère cette fin comme une grande perte tant ce site m'a été utile dans mes recherches de tablatures. Les tablatures pour basse sont en
effet relativement difficiles à trouver sur la toile, et voir cette bibliothèque brûler n'est guère réjouissant...
EDIT du 17/05/2011:
Voilà, c'est fait. Les liens vers Bassmasta renvoient désormais vers Songsterr, un site de tablatures plus abouti mais qui vous demandera un accès premium (Songsterr Plus) pour profiter de toutes
