Reading The Guitar Tabulatute (Tabs) : Vibrato and String Muting


qrcode for - Reading The Guitar Tabulatute (Tabs) : Vibrato and String Muting
Vibrato in Tabs:
E|---------------------
B|---------------------
G|---------------------
D|-6~~~ --------------
A|---------------------
E|----------------1v---

Here, the string is rapidly bent up and down several times to a very short extent producing an oscillating sound. It can be noted with one or a few "~" - tilde symbol (found just below the "Esc" key) placed side by side or by placing a "v" beside the number. It means, do a vibrato on that note - here, 4(6) and 6(1).

String Muting in Tabs:
E|-------------
B|------5x-----
G|--------------
D|--------------
A|--------------
E|--------------

Means, play that note and stop it instantaneously. Here, it means, play and mute the 5th fret of the B string.

Welcome :-)

Sourish Dassaid...

What does (10)(11)(9) this type of notation mean?

Arindam Sarkarsaid...

Same thing. The numbers in brackets are the fret numbers. Brackets are used to avoid ambiguities between, say a --11--- (one one) and and --(11)-- (eleven).
