Can anyone please help out a complete novice?

When reading the tablature I see besides the specific notes there are also chords.

How do I play the chords with the tabs? At present I'm only playing the notes.

Many Thanks

Your questions confuses me. You could be seeing the chords and tabs for one song, in which case you aren't supposed to play both simultaneously.

But if you're seeing the chords arranged as fret numbers within the tabs, then you should play them as you would any other note.
