Guitar Tablature

Core Location: Ground

This lesson is to make sure we understand how basic tablature is interpreted/realized. Tablature can and often is referred to as "tab" or "tabs".

In the video, we play what is shown below. Make sense of it.

Tablature Components

  • Lines = strings
  • Big numbers = frets
  • Little numbers = fingers
  • Each column = a moment in time

A common mistake is inverting the strings. Remember, the highest line in tablature is the bottom string [closest to the floor].
