Top 5 Sources For Lyrics, Chords, and Tabs


Back when Classic Rock was just rock, lyrics usually weren't printed on album liners, and to get the chords you had to buy the sheet music.

That was pre-Internet. Today, tracking down lyrics, chords, and tablatures is quick, easy, and free – if you know where to look.

These sites maintain large databases and most all musical genres. If you can't find a song on one of these sites, try the band or artist's site. Sites maintained by fans are also good potential sources.

Happy hunting!
