Just read the sheet music and match it up to the notes on your guitar. play it in first position if you need (first 4 frets). What specifically don't you understand?

Well there's two parts so unless you can two hand tap I'd figure out the treble clef'd staffs first. To figure out the key, you look at the key signiture (b/# signs after the time sig) in this case no #'s or b's so by looking at this, it would lead me to believe the piece is in Cmaj with some accidentals (#'s/b's) thrown in. Now to know what note you need you look at the lines and spaces. On the treble clef (top STAFF) The lines bottom to top are e,g,b,d,f or Every Good Boy Does Fine. The spaces for the treble clef are F,A,C,E or FACE. So you would start, F D F D A F| A F Half rest| Then up an octave. I hope that helped a bit. For the bottom or Bass clef the lines bottom to top are G,B,D,F,A or Good Boys Deserve Fudge Always. The spaces are A,C,E,G. All Cool Elephants Growl. Good luck man.

Edit: I take it back you wouldn't have to two hand tap just pluck two strings at the same time alot, then a little walking bassline run and back to the two strings at a time.

That doesnt look right, the first note is an F, and base B, well I don't thin it's a B because, I'm pretty sure it's read differently with a bass clef, I only learned with treble. Anyway, 5th fret B is E so i do'nt think that is right, maybe it's just all down a fret.


There's already a tab for this:

Jeeze, you guys should learn to read treble and bass cleff fluently. Bass cleff is read completely different then treble cleff. On the bass cleff the lines are G B D F A, and the spaces are A C E G. So the bass of the first eight beat would be a D, and the lead from the treble cleff would be a F. Here's the first two bars.
 
E|-------------------------------------
B|-------------------------------------
G|-------------------------------------
D|-3-0--3--0--7--3--7--3--------------
A|-5-8-12--8--5--8-12--8-5-8-12-8-----
E|-------------------------------------


You can switch it to different strings for more convenience if you want. Thats just the easiest way to tab it out I know of.

EDIT: Looks like it's in the key of F, with a few accidentels at the end. And sorry for the spelling, I was up late last night and only got 3 hours sleep.
