Now lets move to tabs.
Usually guitars have six strings. We are not talking about 7 or more strings guitars.
They look like this:
Lets try with numbers.
The tab is read from left to right. So, this tab means:
first you play D string at open fret (hit the D string)
then G string at 1st Fret by placing your finger on it.
then B string and 2nd fret and so on.
The difference between first tab and in this tab is that you have to play multiple strings at the same time.
At first you have to hold down A and D string at 2nd fret and G string at 1st fret and play all 6 strings.
The “x” Meaning you don’t hit that string. Don’t play that string.
