    Sounds like your guitar is out of tune, you would have to tune it. As you are quite new to guitars i doubt you could do it manually. Maybe you could use a tunning software...below are the details

    As for how to play tabs..check this thread.....

    Bridge Setting

    All you need to do is set the tone of the guitar right. Even before you tune your guitar, YOu have to set the bridge right. To do this increase the height on the bridge to full on bother ends. Tune to a lower pitch(Or make the strings Tight not too much though). Start playing the top(thickest string) and decrease the height to a point where you dont get a buzz also bearing in mind the gap between the strings and the fret board should be low. Repeat the same procedure for the bottom most string (thinnest) . Then the next step is tuning which the MOD(God) has explained. And play what you want.

    As you said how would you play this ....its not the number of fingers...its a number of frets on each particular string.

    so if its like this..


    this means that on the first string(Thinest string) play 1st fret and then on second string play 5th fret and then again on first string play 2nd fret and so on...

    I hope I answered your question.

    Classic. Wait.. no it wasn't

    So it sounds like shit. Do you have a tuner? Download the Audio Phonics guitar tuner and tune it accordingly. Use google to find it.

    If its in tune and it still sounds like shit, then change your strings. Is it a buzzing sound or does it make your ears bleed?

    Second question: I'm guessing you're talking about barre chords. If you just started playing its gonna be a little tough for you to play all the strings cleanly. You don't require six fingers, use only one finger to play it. I think there's a tutorial on barre chords over here.
