Original thread on the Old Forum
This thread will be used to collect licensed songs and public domain songs that are not considered game music. The purpose of the site is to share songs made for video games; anything that was not made for a game unfortunately is not in the spirit of video game music (Anime being an exception).
Licensed - Production music, stock music, and library music falls under this category. This includes songs that are created by production music companies such as APM Music. It also includes songs that would be found in real life radio that may be used for an in-game radio or other scenario.
Public Domain - Songs with expired intellectual property rights. This includes classical music, folk songs, and classic holiday songs.
* Post only licensed / public domain music used in a game or trailer that was not originally composed for the game soundtrack.
* Write the subject as: Song Title - Game Title
* If you have a file such as guitarpro, powertab, or pdf please also post a text version of the tab in the forum. Put multiple files into a ZIP folder.
* Try to include an audio example to go with your tab; upload a file or use a youtube link.
* NO Guitar Hero / Rock Band / Rhythm Game tabs please! There are other guitar tab sites for these kind of songs. Rhythm games with original music (Gitaroo Man, Rhythm Heaven) should be posted to the main site using the submission forum.
* In-game radio songs such as those found in Grand Theft Auto are also discouraged. I will allow in-game radio for music created by production music composers, as these are not likely to have tabs on other websites the way popular radio music would.
* Arrangements of public domain songs such as Will the Circle Be Unbroken? can be posted to the main site if the arranged version for the game is substantially different from the original song. However, if the original version of the song was used for the game, it should be posted here in this thread.
* Tetris will be an exception for public domain. The classical songs used do not differ much from their original versions, but are so closely associated with the game and have become a part of game music history; those songs can be posted to the main site.
Since these tabs will not be posted to the main site, a moderator does not have to check for accuracy. You don't need to post on the submissions forum; just post it directly here yourself.
