e|-------------------------------------------------------|<------ thats your highest string
B|-------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------5------6---------7------5-----6-----7-----|
A|-------------------------------------------------------|
E|-7-------4-------5------------7-----4-----5------------| <-----thats you deepest string

the numbers are the frets so 7 would be the 7th fret
the numbers correspond the the fret on the said string so, 7 on D would be the 7th fret on the D string (4th string from high e).

Also you read left to right in sequence. Notes played on the same vertical line are played at the same time.
