Hi, this is Wesley Winford, and today I'll be showing you how to read tabs on a guitar for songs. I'll be, let me show you an example of a song. I'll play it first. So, what I was doing right there was going from twelfth fret, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah and then B string on twelfth fret to ninth fret and so on. Basically it was just a real simple melody going from the twelfth fret to the G string and then the B string twelfth fret to the ninth fret backwards and then and so on. So, that first line right there is the twelve to the nine right there, it's just and then the next part right there from the B string to E string moved like this and then that does that twice band then back to the E to the G string right there. This has been how to play guitar tabs in a song.
