    I am new to guitar and learning the theory and also started practising notes C D E F G A B C and also basic chords like A Am C Cm E Em D Dm G Gm

    But when it comes to tab, what should be the position of our fingers on fretboard. is it in multiples of 4 frets? any basic theory behind the usage of finger's position

    There is no theory.. use whatever is convenient.. it all depends on the scale you are playing.. but use all your fingers - don't ignore your pinky finger..

    if you want to learn it the right way, go to a good classical guitar teacher. there is a "theory" but it has do with ergonomics and playing comfort rather than actual theory. e.g when practicing C-major key arpeggios, you would want to start the C chord with your pinky rather than your ring finger because it helps you build strength to play these arps in other positions.

    don't ask me cause i don't know shit and play noisy punk like stuff.
