I know that he is planning to switch to dylanchords.com but currently dylanchords.info is down and dylanchords.com still seems to be in development. Does anyone have any details what's going on?

This is really disrupting my weekly ritual of drinking and banging out reckless Dylan covers.

This is what comes up:


DYLANCHORDS.COM UNOFFICIAL MIRROR
8 Feb 2015: OK, OK - it's time for a new update, I guess. I'm working on Shadows In The Night. Not quite done yet, but they're trickling in, so stay tuned.

What you are looking at is an unofficial mirror of Eyolf Østrem's dylanchords.com, much of which is temporarily unavailable due to the American Music Publishers' Association (MPA)'s "rattling of sabres against tab sites". Thankfully I have been able to track down a recent copy of the site, which I have uploaded as a service to fellow guitar-playing Dylan fans who may be experiencing withdrawal symptoms.

This mirror is also available as a ZIP file which you are encouraged to download in case this mirror is forced offline.

Please see the Mail page if you would like to contact Eyolf Østrem, the creator of the original Dylanchords site.

Not working here either. Odd that it functions for some but not for others.
If anyone knows a work-around or finds out what's up, please post here.

There used to be an option where you could download all of the tabs in one bulk download. Glad I did that years ago, might want to check if that's still an option.

EDIT: The site is working for me- on the left hand side of the page choose zip and you can download everything at once.

Interesting how it's loading for some but not others. It's not loading for me.

Guess I should've download everything while I had the chance.

For anyone who needs it, here's a link to Eyolf's "The Bob Dylan Songbook" that's been on line for a number of years.

http://oestrem.com/tmp/mbpbook.pdf

Highly advisable to save the pdf file. In the meantime, we hope the main dylanchords webpage gets back to working for everyone. It's a real treasure.

Dylanchords is a great archive. It's especially useful for songs that have finger picking and songs with alternate tunings.

I own the big, classic, Dylan song book that covers 1966-1975. Just about all the chords in that book are in the wrong key or just plain wrong.

I can only access it by first going through web.archive.org and choosing the latest date available. Ive thought about downloading it but I just love the web-browser format and how easy it is to navigate.

I have big hopes for the new website.

Thanks for the responses!

I can access it. I'm in Europe, maybe that's the difference.

Still down for me. Are the people that were previously having problems still having them?

Still down for me, too. I don't know if the problem is regional (I'm in the US).
Meanwhile, I'm using a link via the Wayback Machine. A little slow loading initially but seems to function normally.

Hi all.
I've been getting reports that the site is down, but as some of you know: it's not. It may be some regional thing - most, if not all, the reports are from the US, afaict. I'm looking into it, and maybe I'll take the opportunity to complete v.2.0...

Eyolf, I can't express how much your site means to me. it's easily the website that I visit most and I trust your site more than UltimateGuitar or any "official" chord/tab books. I can't wait to see the updated website (though I think dylanchords is perfect as is). What can we expect from the update, if you dont mind my asking?

    * Better navigation, so that I finally can ditch the frames structure, which is soooo last century, literally.
    * Better search capabilities and more automated menu system.
    * Opportunities for collaboration.
    * More practical administrative area. Now it's pure html, which is fun but error prone and slightly tedious to work with.

Oh, and as a consequence of the above: probably some more frequent updates...

Much appreciated. It really is a great site!

Update: I've re-established dylanchords.com as a mirror of the mirror at dylanchords.info. Those who can't use the .info address should be able to use .com
Please let me know if there is any problems with the new/old address.
