Watch the Working With Tablature (Tab) online guitar lesson by Rich Maloof from Acoustic Guitar For Beginners
We won't drag you through a whole lesson on tablature here, but we do want to show you how to use forms you may see online.
User-generated song charts will often include chords and lyrics, but they don't have chord grids to show how the chords are shaped. Instead, they often use some version of tab. So, we're explaining here how a tab chord grid compares to a conventional chord grid, like the ones we've been using on screen in this course.
Again, it's a jungle out there. If you have trouble playing a song with a tab you've found online, don't let it get you down - it's probably the tab, not you.
