Question about tabs.

OK, so I'm hoping to get a guitar foor Christmas. I wantto use this tab to learn a song



The problem is, I'm left handed. Will that change how I read this tab (Since I'd be getting a left handed guitar?

Also, can I play that with an electric guitar? That's what I'm hoping to get.

Thank you for your help!!

The tabs work the exact same for left or right handed playing. The only information tabs give you are the number of the fret and string that the note is played on (besides tempo, ideally).

You're all good, buddy.

Nope, no difference. Top line of the tab is still your thinnest string(highest pitch) & there's no rule saying you can't play certain songs on acoustic or electric.

Thank you both! I wondered about the guitar type since electric guitars seem to sound a bit too ''loud' or 'energetic for this song (It sounds more like it was played on an accoustic.
