What do all the dashes mean. It seeme like they are important or are they just randomly put there
thats the string
-Keep on listening to the great Joe Strummer. Cos through music, we can live forever.
Do you mean like ---6-5-8-7-----0-3-2-0---- or something like that?
If so, those dashes are just where there is no note in the song. The more dashes between each note, the longer the pause, or "rest", there is.
it marks the string and it can also the timing:


the vertical line can shows the end of the bar.
It's basically just an example of the string. And different spacing between the dashes can mean different timing too.
