    Well usually you guys ll be given tabs like...

    ...h p
    e -3---------
    b --3--------
    g ---2-------
    d -----------
    a -----------
    e ----3-2\--5

    This is the string pattern....and the numbers on the strings are the fret numbers....
    All you guys do is play the frets in the given order......

    Then theres the occasional p and h on the frets.....these are hammer and pulloff markers..tell you where to hammer and where to make a pulloff....i suppose u know wat that is....

    and the \ after 2 on the e string denotes slide from fret 2 to 5.....

    Thats pretty much it.....

    riz u play both strings together,
    and is the tab u posted of a diffrent tuning??
    i think it shud be b instead of d, or u missed out a string in between.

    well pull off means, simply u play a note and lift ur finger off the board, so that the string continues to vibtare,

    and hammer means u play any note and then hammer ur finger on to another fret,
    and there r plenty of lessons on igt,
    and u can also try these
