I know I just joined, but please don't call me a leech. I need help reading tabs. I understand the strings and frets and everything, but I just don't understand the beat of them? Like how fast am I supposed to play it? I've looked at many tutorials on reading tabs, but none of them explain it. I'm and trying to learn how to play http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/a/asking_alexandria/closure_tab.htm .
The problem with ASCII tabs is that they generally don't specify bpm or what type of note duration it is (quarter, eighth, etc.). You really need to have the song to guide you and figure out the rhythm from. If you want something more accurate, you need something done in power tab or guitar pro, or an ASCII tab where the tabber specifies the different note duration.
