One of the learning tools you will grow to LOVE as you continue your guitar playing journey is tablature (sometimes just called tab). Tab is basically easy to decipher charts that show you which string and fret to put your finger on for chords or licks or songs.

There’s also something called Guitar Pro tabs which "play" the tabs and will let you slow them down or loop any desired section of the music. This is an incredible tool for guitarists!

We have 11,000 tabs and 10,000 Guitar Pro files on TrueFire and we include them with every single course. All Access students also have a Soundslice tab tool for many of our video lessons, which plays the tab as the video plays so that you can follow along.
