: How do i read tabs? I am a beginner with the bass but i cant read the tabs that say things like:

:
: G---2----
: D-1---4-5
: A------1-
: E--3--3--
: B2-------

: And so on. If u know please E-Mail me at Meatrat@aol.com

: Thanx!!

Ok... bassicly, how its read is that... the G is your G string, aka the smallest string on your bass, the number that is on that line is the fret that you play on. the B or B string is found on a 5 string or more bass, so if you have a 4 string bass then you cant play those notes... But bassically you look at the string G(smallest string),D,A,E(fattest string)and the fret that it is on and play it in the order that they appear reading from left to right... I hope you can understand my babbling, if not email me to ask any other questions you may have. GOOD LUCK!!!
