We take a look at the ways using tablature to learn songs costs you in the long run. Tabs are a shortcut, but does it wind up costing you in the long run?

This is part of a new series "Things I wish I learned sooner" where I'll be passing on important lessons that had a huge effect on me, and I wish I would have known about much earlier in my playing. We'll be learning how to be creative at anytime, better ways to compose and write music, and how to find our own unique musical voice.
