How To Read Guitar TABs
Before Getting into the fun stuff, there is one absolute fundamental that will make this entire process easier. Guitar TAB (tablature) is a simple way of writing down the notes that anyone can learn to read in like 5 minutes (no kidding!)
TAB is the simplest way to read and write the notes on the fretboard. The thickest string is represented by the bottom line, and the thinnest by the top like. It looks the same as when you put the guitar on your lap and look down at the fretboard.
