Hi there,

Today I've been fiddling with the Mysongbook-problem as well, and I've got it
working. Instead of downloading the whole page I was interested in downloading
only the tabs of a certain artist.

First of all you should set your browser-ID to Mozilla because then it will
display a plain downloadlink on the  page instead of a button. This will
probably solve your solution and you can use it to download all the tabs from
the site.

I used an alternative directory structure as suggested in a previous post to
put all the tablature files and HTML files in seperate directories.

Then I go to the first page of an artist and take this as download URL. 

Finally I adjusted some parameters to download only the things I need.

This is what I came up with for example to download all tabs by Steve Vai:
 URL to download:
 Scan rules:
 +*.gp3 +*.gp4 +*.zip +*.gp5 +*.gtp
 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826
 Local Structure Type:
 HTML in site_name/html, images/other in site_name/images

After a while you get a ton of HTML-pages you can throw away and the other
directory has all the tabs you need! Hopefully  you understand my explanation
otherwise I'd be happy to help you out!
