Hello Everyone!
I'm new here and I've learnt to play the guitar on school.. I can't do it well, but i'm doing it a lot and i love to do what i can! :P

I Just had a question..
I don't get the tabs.. I leart chords to play and i really want to learn how to read the tabs. Can anyone please explain it?

yeah, its real simple.
a tab looks kinda like this:

e:------------
B:-----------
G:-----------
D:------------
A:----2------
E:----0------

each of those lines are one of your strings, so the bottom string E is your low string.
those numbers there refer to the fret you play on each string. so for the above tab, you would play the 2nd fret on the A string, and play the E string open. and you read from left to right. and thats it.

here is another example:

e:-----------------------------5-----8
B:-------------5----8-------------
G:-5-7-8---------------------------
D:-----------------------------
A:-------------------------
E:--------------------------

so reading from left to right you would play those frets in that order on those top 3 strings.

here are a couple things you may see in tablature:
X- muted note
(12) - harmonic (at 12th fret)
P.M. - palm muted
12b15 - play 12th fret, then bend string up to 15th fret


any more questions?
