The most useful guitar skill is to tab. Tab appears like this:
e------------------------------------------------
B------------------------------------------------
G------------------------------------------------
D------------------------------------------------
A------------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------------
The letters up there mean the strings(highest to lowest-e is the highest and E is the lowest). This is an example of a song:
e-----------------------------------------------
B-----------------------------------------------
G-----------------------------------------------
D-----------------------------------------------
A---7-7-10-7-5-3-2------------------------------
E-----------------------------------------------
Knowing that E is the lowest and A is on top of it, it would mean that A is the second lowest.
e highest
B second highest
G third highest
D third lowest
A second lowest
E lowest
The numbers on A are " 7-7-10-7-5-3-2". Count on the fretboard till fret seven. Hit #7. There is another 7 so hit it. What ever the number is, hit it on the fretboard(on the correct string). By the way that is Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes. Those are the verses. There you go folks!
