tabs database issue

Hey Dude, Johnny,

I've noticed that most of the tabs for songs by The Clash are under C (Clash tabs) but that some are under T (The Clash tabs). This is probably a problem with other bands with names that start with ‘The’. Sometimes the person submitting the tabs calls the band ‘The Beagle Bangers’ and sometimes just ‘Beagle Bangers’.

Is there a way to get all these Clash tabs to show up on one search page? (Same goes for other bands with The as the first word in their name.) Otherwise, a person would need to check both Clash and The Clash when looking for a tab.

Maybe there needs to be a statement on the Submit Bass Tabs page about this: e.g. If the band's name starts with ‘The’ include it in the Band Name - for example, The Beagle Bangers instead of just Beagle Bangers.

we actually thought of that when we were coding the site, so it shouldn't even be a problem.

but thanks for pointing it out, we'll look into it first thing in the morning. it's kinda late here right now, i'm off to bed.

This should be done automatically but apparently there is a bug. We'll fix it soon!
