    Hi all !! I am new here.
    Why can't we use normal notes ( c, b, d ) instead of tabs and chords ? Well, I find notes easier to play than chords and I can't understand tabs much.

    We can and we do. It's better to think in terms of notes.

    Chords, however, are made up of these notes and are a different issue. We need to learn chords.

    notes i.e, abcdefg...we have them all over the fret board...so if sum1 indicates a song's notes to u instead of tabs..uL have to take the pain of finding out where/how to play...but tabs r a given format which tell where exactly in the fretboard u need play!...tabs r used universally just like notations..so my dear u need to learn how to read tabs, if u want to play guitar!..no escaping it!

    no one is forcing u to play chords...but im sure uL get bored playing notes...sumday u'd like to strum/rhythm guitaring..so u shud learn chords..they r not difficult...just practice well!!

    what do u mean cant understand "much"??..either u know how to read tabs or u dont!!... im givin u a link..read it properly..and uL get to know how to read/play tabs>>
