Hey guys, i understand basic tab, and i have been looking for some advance tab tutorial; if you have a link please post.

What does something like this mean: example from sweet child o mine:

I got the basic intro down, but what is gtr 2 doing, whats the E mean and the | and the / underneath.

Continuing through, I see +W, and E+Q

Is this formatting from the tab writing software and we can ingore or does it have some meaning -

Sorry for the stupid question. I see all these how to read tab tutorials, but in a lot of tab you have this extra stuff, which no tutorial seems to comment on?

strict down, half note in the beginning then eighth notes for the rest, yes.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.
