Not quite sure where this goes... sorry.

Alright so i was looking at some My Chemical Romance (please do not critisize the bands i listen to) tabs. In one of the songs the lead guitar part had something that looked like this...

D| 7
A| X
E| 5

Yeah... how exactly do i play that?

Oh, yeah. And in another song by MXPX it had songthing that looked like this...

D| 4 2 0
A| X X X
E| 3 3 3

you hit the string, its fingered, but you dont let the noise come out, so you get the click sound

And i do know how to read tab, i just don't know what i'm supposd to do with my fingers on certain things...

Okay, soon as I explain you'll be like duh.
7
X
5

is the same exact thing as
7
7
5
except for the fact that with your third finger you don't hold down the fret so you mute the string in the middle. the x just means to mute.

You just mute the A string with your finger.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

That's called an octave chord. The 5 and 7 are the same notes. Anyway, use your first finger on the 5, then angle it so the fleshy part of the finger mutes the string right below it, then just hit the 7 with your ring finger.

For the bottom on, it's the same deal, mute the middle string with the first finger you put down, ( or at least the finger resting at the lowest pitch. )

Technically not a chord, just a root and it's octave.
