    How do you play a tab that goes-

    How to play the notes
    -0-? do you play 7th fret at 1st string and immediately play 6th string open?

    u play it simulatanesously

    u can do two things:
    1. if u are finger picking - i.e. using only finger s to pick strings, u can use your thumbs to pick the 6th string and ring finger to pick the 1st string

    2. if u are using plectrum - u can use the plectrum to pick the 6th string and use the ring finger to pick the 1st string

    however the key point is that both the strings have to be picked simultaneously

    plectrum is a piece of equipment which is used for initiaiting the vibrations in a string.

    usually it looks like a triangular piece of flat material 0.5 mm to 2 mm thick (well in normal circumstances)

    the shape can vary - it can be traingular, oval, and some other weird shape - however one vertice has to be a little pointed for speed picking of strings

    the material can be anything - tortoise shell, plastic, ...
