Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
You put your fingers on the frets (the number) of the strings those numbers are on!. For example!.


That is the E chord tabbed out!. To explain in more detail; the E string is left open (fret 0), the A string is held down at the second fret, the D string is held down at the second fret, the G string is held down at the first fret, and the B and E string are both left open!. Www@QuestionHome@Com

I'm providing links to some sites I think will help you!. Take it slow, every thing you learn is a step forward!. Don't rush to understand and know it all in one big leap!. It doesn't work that way with playing an instrument!.

Good luck and I hope this helps!!! :)


Learn how to read music instead!. Nobody on a paying gig uses tab anyway!. It looks like the easy way out at first, but learning to read music is easier in the LONG RUN!.
