Go to a site like http://www.ultimate-guitar.com and search for a song/band. Once you find a tab (such as this one) its pretty easy to read

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/m/m ... r3_tab.htm


The numbers on the tabs simply tell you where abouts on the string to put your fingers. In the screen shot above it is telling you to play the 2nd string - 5th fret, and the 5th string - 3rd fret together.


...then the second thing it is telling you to play is the 2nd string - 6th fret, and the 5th string - 5th fret.


And so forth.

There's a few other things you can learn here about some notations you will probably see used in most tabs...

Now, if I only knew how to play any of it... :(

So that is the illustrious BoltBait! :D I was looking at the picture and thinking "you know, it matches the avatar...except for the graying beard..." and then I scroll down and lo and behold barkbark has updated it!

He must be psychic... :P

Damn, time to color my beard.
