View Full Version : Guitar TAB help!!!

Hey, I have been playing guitar for about 2 years now. But I still can't read guitar tabs. If you can help please post.

Well what do you not understand?

Umm, the numbers are fret numbers. The string notes are on the side. And here's a legend.
/ - slide
b - bend
h - hammer-on
p - pull-off
v - vibrato
~ - let ring
br - bend release
t - tapping sometimes.

That's all I can think of at the moment.

Are you just bragging? Or trying to make him feel bad? Nobody cares that you can play 6 songs off of tabs in one month. Can you play any songs with notation? I can practically play any song I want with tabs. I just can't play fast-ass solos. That part was just clearing up the statement that I could play anything. Don't call me a hypocrit.

Tab-it is way better, but you have to get it from a friend or something because it costs money.

ya know how its like do each of the -s stand for a one note i can read
the tabs but i
don't understand how ya get the different beat

do you mean like the way you strum or pluck? Just pluck the beat. I didn't get that at first either, but don't just expect the different beats to appear... thats what i did. Dunno if that helps or if I'm talking poo?
