when are you going to stop taking CREDIT FOR MY TABS?? this is pathetic. I originally tabbed these a long time ago for the breaking benjamin fansite underground, www.shallowbay.com. all it takes to confirm is a quick visit to the site, or the forum. I also submitted them to mxtabs.net and ever since then I've seen them popping up everywhere under different names but all you have to do is look at the comments I put in.
