Tab Advice Needed

Postby Bant's Bluz » Sat Jun 17, 2006 2:35 pm

I need some advice. I have attained a basic comphrehension of tab, but am running into some tab notations that are unfamiliar. Can anyone recommend a source (either internet or written publication) that will give me an indepth understanding of tab? Muchas gracias!

There are a bunch of them out on the Web. Most sites that host tabs have explanatory pages. Google's your friend. Look for phrases like "how to read tab." There is no standard tab system, and you'll run across a lot of unfamiliar notations.

Can you describe what you mean? What block are you running into? Can you post a pic of the section that's giving you a problem?

James, I'll try to post a digital pic as soon as I can get it, or try to find a scanner and get it that way.

James this is what I was confused by, specifically the first two notes and the the notations on the next two. I'm referring to the top tab numbered 11

It's an attempt at showing the rhythm. The first two notes are straight eighth notes. The next two are a dotted eigth-sixteenth pair, and there's a set of triplet eighths shortly after.

thanks ricochet! I suspected it was something on that order but after much searching on the net, couldn't find anything even close. My apologies for being such a Dumb A** newbie!
