You know I honestly believe that guitarists read guitar tablature more fluently than normal words
My Gear:

Ibanez RG450LTDBC
Boss GT-8
Boss MT-2 Metal Zone
Behringer guitar
Behringer V-Tone GM108 Amp
...and my fingers.

I see what you did there.

tab is so easy to read, you could prolly learn it in ten minutes at most.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

If your a guitarist, you need to learn tablature, end of story. It's everywhere, if you don't know it, your going to be lost as a guitarist.

What exactly is there to learn? It's pretty much explains itself tbh.

+1, Tab is pretty self explanatory. It makes learning songs much easier.

I know, my cousin told me he couldn't read tab and I was like what? It's..right there. What is there to learn? Allocate the lines to the strings and the numbers to the frets, so bloody simple!

edit: better yet learn how to sight read for guitar.

I didn't know it was possible not to know how to read tabs.

It didn't seem possible, but apparently Messiah can spam even more now.

Yeah, I know. I learned how to read tab the first day I started playing. It's not that hard. One kid at school plays guitar and he doesn't know how to read tab. He said it was because he is dyslexic. Does being dyslexic really make it harder to read tabs?

i assume it'd make it harder, but wouldnt it also mess with note reading and stuff too?

I don't know. This kid says he learns by watching other people play, so I don't think he knows how to read notes either.

that can't be the most effective method...

That's what I was thinking. I can't imagine learning like that. He wanted me to teach him Cowboys From Hell, but I told him that it would be much easier for him to learn how to read tab than have me have to teach him. I have had experience with trying to show people how to play things, and I am horrible at it.
