Sure. It's actually very simple.

e--------
B----------
G-------
D--------
A---------
E------------

The highest 'e' represents the high E string. The B represents the B string, the G represents the G, and so on. These tell you what string(s) you should be playing.

The numbers that appear on the strings simply stand for the frets. So

e--000----0--3
B--------1--------0
G---------
D----------
A--------
E--------

You'd play the open e string, the first fret of the B sttring (c), the third fret of the e string, then open B.

Sorry if I explained it badly, but that's the basic idea.

How do you know how long in between notes?


You don't.

You have to either listen to the song and figure it out yourself, or download Guitar Pro/Tuxguitar/Power Tabs.

I'm trying to learn Smells Like Teen Spirit for Bass, so what would this mean? I'm a bit confused at what the "44" is.

E|1-1-00-2--1-1-00-44-------

Thanks for all the help.

44 means you tremolo pick the 4th fret, or play it very fast.

Don't worry, there is no 44th fret. It simply means that you play the fourth fret twice.

sorry am new to this but am still a bit confused do you just pick the one string or strum across all of them? and with the fret part just hold down that string on the apprpriate fret?
also what about the chords?
