    I have only been learning staff notations for keyboard but the internet is full of tab notations ..and Im findin it very difficult to resist them :p: --- I have no idea abt reading tabs for keyboard. Appreciate if anyone can explain the following tab notation: (excerpt from Estranged by GnR)

    5|--eC----|--Fe-CC-|-----C-eC-|--------|
    4|Fa------|Fa------|b---------|b-----A-|
    b|1-2-3-4-|1-2-3-4-|1-2-3-4---|1-2-3-4-|

    - The Numbers on the left (5, 4, in the above example) indicate the octave
    - Lowercase Letters are the corresponding notes as natural
    - Uppercase Letters are the corresponding notes as sharp
    - The symbol "|" separates each measure / section of beats
    - The bottom row keeps track of the beats, indicating whole, half, quarter, notes etc.
