Hey guys, what is up? It is Aaron. I may go ahead and try now to do another video. This one is been kind of -- but this one is been kind of -- what you have been waiting for me this for a long time and requesting me to do it, alright.
This video here, I am going to try to basically teach a little about reading tabs. Once you see how it is you are going to write, but it is not very difficult to put it easy. But, alright.
Over here on the right ahead, bring tabs and that four sections I really want to cover it at hand.
The first one is Chords, how to read chord in the tab, and the also how to resection two single notes in finger picking, and it -- oh, stop it! Hold on.
Alright, so in the fourth section is just some of the techniques like you bends, slides, hammer on, pull off, harmonics and how in each tab you can recognize when do you to use these techniques.
So, I am going to go ahead and start just one section on chords. A lot of time when you pull up tabs, you are going to see just like look over to the left, al right. You see in section II single notes, do not look at the actually note part on the left, just see the E-A-D-G-B-E, alright.
The first thing you do when you look at the tabs is to see what that says. If it says E-A-D-G-B-E regular, then that means that is standard tuning. If it has E and then the lower case b, the means it is Eb, and I have had an Ab-Db-Gb-Bb or Eb. All that means is tune a half step down because each string is tune half step down.
Sometimes, I do not know if you guys like Boys Avenue, a lot of their tabs will have sharps next to them, but you know if you think of what note is below, maybe C-D is before E, alright. So, A-B-C-D-E, so do not have sometimes D# instead of Eb, and for the A, you have the G sharp, for the D you have C#, so really that just exact same thing, it just half step -- tune half step down.
You also need to check and see if there is capo. For tab says capo 4, mean you put your capo on the IV fret. The way to put a capo is just like you are holding a note. Since my capo, you do not want to put it, follow that up on the IV fret here. You do not want to put it up high because that is -- it sounds okay, but it is going to give you more rubbing. You want to put it as close to the bottom of that fret as you can as close to the IV fret, do you want to make sure not one in the IV fret. Now, it give you clean --
Clean sound like that.
Alright, so once you figure it out where the capo is and what tuning a song is in. Then, you want to look at where did the tab is in chords, single notes or determine whether where you are finger pick it. The easiest way you look at it, you are going to see chords, and all the chords are is just how you have E, A, D, G, B, E, vertically.
You are going to have numbers vertically. So, if you look at kind of less, you see section 1 chords. I have a C, and I have 6 numbers vertically, they say 0-1-0-2-3-0. Alright.
Now, the Em says 0-0-0-2-2-0 okay. Now, want you want to look at that is, you want to look at that as kind of a map as to where on each string your fingers going to go. So, let us take this C for instance. The C starting from the top, which is going to be here --
Because really, if you can turn it around, if you are looking out from my prospective, actually, it was this way, alright. If you are looking from this prospective, it says C, the top string is going to be here,
That is your high E, it is your thinnest string, alright. So, that is going to be the top and you can also see because it correlates with the E-A-D-G-B-E in the left side. So basically, you want to look at the things says tab okay for C. It says 0-1-0-2-3-0.
So, you start in the bottom, you get okay. This is 0, that means it is open. I need you to play it open.
So, no fingers on it.
The next one is your B string and it says 1. So, you got to put a finger on the I fret, that 1 stands for its I fret. The next one is your G string,
It has a 0, so it is open. Next up is your D string, and
