How to Play (read) Tab Guitar

Hello, I will tell you about How to Play (read) Tab Guitar. Actually I'm not good playing with guitar >.<
But somehow i always share as I can ;)
 
Introduction

First i will tell you what you must to know about "Parts" and what it was named.
E—————————————————————-
B—————————————————————-
G—————————————————————-
D—————————————————————-
A—————————————————————-
E—————————————————————-
 

Base Lessons

Ahh finally i made it, ok The E With Red line means: it is a First string on your guitar (count from bellow on your guitar). The B with the orange line means: That is The second string on your Guitar, And so on.
E—————————————————————-
B—————————————————————-
G—————————————————————-
D—————————————————————-
A—————————————————————-
E—4—3—2—1—0———————————-

Now, there are numbers on the E string. It means when you found them you must pick your guitar according to the numbers. Example: When you found 4 on E string, you must pick your sixth string on the fourth fret.

Now, try to play the tab above!

E—3———————————————————-
B—3———————————————————-
G—4———————————————————-
D—5———————————————————-
A—5———————————————————-
E—3———————————————————-
When you found the parallel number on different strings, it mean that you must play it together as a chord.

Tab's Symbols

When you want to play guitar of course you will find these symbols. Now i will describe you what its mean.

h – hammer on
p – pull off
b – bend string up
r – release bend
/ – Slide up
\ – Slide down
v – vibrato
t – tap with right hand
x – play ‘note’ with heavy dumping

Actually i only describe Hammer on and Pull off. :D because they is most often show on Tab Guitar.

Hammer on

E—————————————————————-
B—————————————————————-
G—————————————————————-
D—————————————————————-
A——3h5——3h5——————————————-
E—0———0———0————————————- 

You see the tab above? it means you must play E on open, then play A on 3rd fret, then quickly press 5th fret. (but don't pick the sting) 

Pull off  

E—2p0—3p12p03p0———————————-
B—————————————————————-
G—————————————————————-
D—————————————————————-
A—————————————————————-
E—————————————————————-  

 Actually, Same as before. You need to play E on the 2nd string and then quickly release it (but don't pick the sting). Then Play E on 3rd string and then press E on the 1st string (but don't pick the sting).

Okey, I thing that is all that I know. Hope cane be useful :)
