- HOW DO I READ GUITAR TABS AND WHAT DO THE SPECIFIC MARKS MEAN?

  • Basically each number means one note on the guitar. Each line is a string and the numbers refer to the frets. Let's just see a simple melody with a G chord at the end.

  • We use some tricks to make our playing more exciting. Check them out here ...


  • "---5h7---" a hammer on.
  • "---7p5---" a pull off.
  • "---/7---" slide up to the 7th fret from an undefined place.
  • "---12\--" slide down from the 12th fret
  • "---5/7---" slide up from the 5th fret to the 7th
  • "---7\5---" slide down from the 7th fret to the 5th
  • "---7~~~---" make a vibrato effect on the 7th note
  • "---5h7p5---" combination of a hammer on and a pull off, 3 notes with only one picking
  • "---7(9)---" bend the 7th note until it sounds like it was the 9th
  • "---(9)(7)---" start picking just after you've bent the 7th note, then release it to the original position
  • "---(9)(7)p5.---" a combination of the previous "trick" with a pull off
  • "---5.---" with a dot after the 5 means that you have to stop the note right after picking it, so it's a short note
  • "---<12>---" natural harmonics: you just touch the note right above the fret but don't push it to the fretboard
  • "X"-s mean the fake notes, so just lay your fingers on the strings and let them "chaka-chaka"
  • sometimes you can also see "---5'---" in tabs; however, it is not mentioned in the video. This sign means a smooth quarter note bending. Mostly used in blues solos ...


  • Now test your knowledge with some cool guitar licks! (TAB under the video)
