Transcript of How to read Guitar Tablature

How to read Guitar Tablature! What is Tablature? It is a simpler version of sheet music used to play guitar. It consists of six lines: The top line being the highest string.
The bottom line being the lowest string. Numbers and symbols are placed on these lines to indicate what fret or frets to play, and how. They are always played from left to right... and numbers stacked on top are played simultaneously, as a chord. ("0" represents an open string) These numbers are sometimes accompanied by symbols. These indicate techniques to be used when playing. Some of the most common are: ~ - sustain
h - hammer-on
p - pull-off
X - muted string
. - palm mute
/ - slide up
\ - slide down * - pinch harmonic
<_> - natural harmonic b/^ - bend
r - release bend
t - tap
tr - tremelo pick
v - vibrato
So, by using tablature, you can save time and confusion when playing guitar. You can find tabs on Ultimate-Guitar.com, which is a community of players who translate and post songs.
