do you mean tablature? the letters on the left correspond to each string, and the numbers tell you which fret on that string. it doesn't show note length or rests though, so it has a few problems.

Edit: ^that

Bacially, this site has tabs for guitar and bass :

e:---------------------------------------
b:---------------------------------------
g:---------------------------------------
d:---------------------------------------
a:---------6--6--6--6-------8--8--8--
E:--4--4----------------4--4-----------

The tab is played looking at that one above looking down (^^)
The number refers to the fret number on your guitar or bass.
ie.

G:

e--------------------
b------------------
g--------------------
d-------------------
a--------------------
E-----3--3---3---3


Think of the lines (---------) as your strings and the numbers as where to put your fingers / fret.

Good luck learning.
