More Advanced TAB Reading

There have been a few questions on the Blues Guitar Unleashed members’ forum about reading some of the more unusual symbols in TAB (tablature).

I did this video in hopes of answering those questions and thought it would be useful to a lot of people.

You already know therefore considerably on the subject of this matter, made me in my opinion imagine it from so many various angles. Its like women and men aren’t interested unless it is one thing to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your personal stuffs great. At all times take care of it up!

    hey Griff, Great lesson on the TAB. I think in one of your Courses that I purchased you go through the TAB & Music I think it may be in Pentatonic Scales & Technique Mastery.
    It would be great when you do these types of lessons that you Refer to what Course we can find them in as some members here may like to know what Griff Hamlin Course they can purchase to brush up on these key points.

    All good for a refresher.

    Griff, I wish I was younger so I had more time to let you lead me down the road to being a magnificent guitar player such as yourself.I started learning guitar a year ago. I’m 72 yrs old. I am enjoying learning, but I want to do the chord thing and not put too much effort (time)into being a polished player or spend time learning notes or the playing skills that this video explains. I can only wish that I took the time years ago to learn to play like an accomplished guitar player. I see your passion for what you do, what a lovely way to wake up each day, loving what you do. Keep up the great job of teaching as you.

    Exactly what I needed to clear up some confusion! However, I’m studying very hard to learn to read the notes “old school” style because I feel that they are much more descriptive than tabs. I would really benefit from having a lesson just like this one for the notes…if you ever get some free time.

    Thanks for putting this together!

    Reply Reply December 24, 2012

    Tab reading isn’t the real problem in my opinion. The real problem is reading and UNDERSTANDING the music notation. Rythm and tempo don’t transfer from paper to student easily. Having a recording of the music helps us learn a song in monkey hear monkey do fasion, but unless you sit down and try to read and understand the musical notation along with the song playing, you’re not going to learn to read the music. Knowing the BPM of a song would also be a helpful learning tool. As a new student of music this is the most difficult, time consuming and frustrating part of the entire learning process. Being an old guy also doesn’t help!
    Thanks for all you do to help all of us, old and young, learn.

    Hi Griff,

    I have Blues Guitar Unleashed and I am working through it. I have also watched many of your free lessons and have bought the Theory course. I know you stress the importance of “counting” and that foxes me all the time – never having been a mathematician. I may have missed lessons that you have done on this subject and, perhaps, you could either point me to the parts of the packages that deal with that OR could you do a special in depth lesson on counting and how you relate it to tablature. I’m convinced I have seen you do something on this but I watch “dozens” of lessons and teachers and might have forgotten where it was. I am trying to grapple with the theory course and have fun working out chords BUT my greatest weakness seems to be in getting the timing right. Sorry if I’ve picked a question that you have already covered and will gladly go to the back of the class and shut up. However, your help would be greatly appreciated. Too far to come for a personal lesson as I live on the south coast of England.

    Thanks for all your great lessons,

    Andrew

    Dear Griff

    Many thanks for my cd’s and manuals “Blues guitar unleashed” they
    arrived a couple of days ago.

    To explain to you I am a left handed player and I have a left handed
    chord book which I am using to convert the the chord diagrams in the
    manual. On page 15 D7 is easily converted by moving over to the left
    the notes on the 3rd fret. On page 18 the same D7 chord is shown in a
    different layout and does not feature in my left handed chord book.

    My question is can I use the D7 from page 15 instead of the layout on
    page 18. Or am I being a little dense and missing some of the point of
    lesson 2?

    Your comments would be appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    Excellent video. Griff, you seem to know what beginners need to know.

    I was hoping to see you demonstrate how to play a slur from one note to another note on different strings. I see many of those and am never sure if I’m supposed to play up the fretboard where both notes can be played on the same string or do a “hammer on from nowhere.”

    Hi Griff:

    Enjoying your lessons for sure!

    One criticism…. When I read your tab – several of the numbers are VERY difficult to read due to the string line going thru the numbers 6 8 and 9 are very difficult to read.
    Maybe consider a different font or style.

    Thanks!

    Thank you very much for all the emails. Just ordered your dvd/cd’s. I have been a drummer for 20 plus years and i picked up the guitar to try to explain to my guitarist what I was trying to write. However your emails got me to wanting to play the guitar more. I have seen what you send me and believe you can teach me how to play the guitar because I have always wanted to. From a drummers point of view, what you have showed me already, inspires me to want to be a blues guitarist because I love the blues. Although I play rock, heavy metal, country etc. on the drums.
    Thanks again,

    Hi Griff.
    First I would like to say what a brilliant Course the BGU is. There is a problem with the Audio CD 1 in that it is cracked. I never noticed it at first until I came to play along tracks 57 and 58 to which no sound comes out the rest of the Audio CD is ok. Just lately it chipped on the edge when I ejected it from my CD player. I cannot tell how careful I have been in handling it as I do with all my CDs. I bought tthe Course on 29th June 2010 through pay pal for £88.10 the reference payment is 35314369001. Would it be possible to replace Audio CD 1. My home address is 44 Cedardale Park Widnes Cheshire WA83JU England. Once again brilliant Course and great E mails. Thanks

I now sit in with a local lot of (juniors) and jam away hammering and bending like a lunatic.Didn’t have the confidence before, but now I understand more it’s great. Like someone said”blues is easy to play but impossible to master”. Regarding PTTB it’s a pity we have to go from the written files back to the videos but I expect it would cost a fortune to do otherwise. Keep up the good work sir and thank you very much.

    Griff,
    When ordering the Blues Unleashed, you offered a discount on your beginner’s course. I decided to take advantage of that with the view it might help me to identify and perhaps correct any bad habits I might have taken on being self taught. Not only was this the case, but taking the time to go back to the basics has really been paying off so far. Another added benefit is I have a much better understanding of reading Tab than I have ever had.
    So starting out I really thought I would just breeze through the beginning course, but now see the benefit of taking my time to go through it as well. Nicely done and very well laid out so far! Thanks, Griff! And keep up the good work!

    Hi Griff

    As ever, thanks etc… Some advice please:

    These bends are proving really tough on my fingers, especially on the thick third string. I’m using an acoustic and I’m thinking I possibly need lighter strings. My fingers are really hurting. Also, for years I’ve never used a pick and adjusting is setting me back a lot. Thirdly, you seem to be doing something very subtle when you ‘stop’ the string after a bend. I’ve slowed down the video and it seems like you practically rest for a semi-quaver after the bend – but I can’t make it out on the video.

    By the way guys (and gals), I just discovered that on my (latest?) Windows Media Player, I can slow down Griff’s videos to about quarter speed and it’s still at the right pitch. This is REALLY cool as it means I can play along with the music at super beginner speed. Try it!

    Great job Griff. It’s kind of funny, I was working with a buddy of mine over the webcams trying to teach him lesson 11 from BGU and we got into a discussion of what the parenthesis meant. Based on what I’d been playing I kind of guessed that it was just a held out note.

    For all of you who are on the fence about buying the course or just can’t figure out how to pay for it, just do it. Even try to take the 3 payment option if you can’t really afford it. Having that bit of happiness from playing better will probably put your mind at ease over the economy as well. I’ve learned more these past few weeks than I have in the last 10 years of playing.

    I have to agree with Marty. I am a “senior” citizen compared to most to visit your sites and use your videos. It was very difficult for me, in fact pretty much impossible to see the actual tab in the video, even with my glasses on.
    That being said, I sincerely appreciate all the help you are providing everyone. I am among those who truly appreciate your teaching methods. You seem like a “friend down the road” in your mannerisms and everything has been presented clearly and understandably. I already bought the Blues Unleashed videos and have started my training. Looking forward to playing some blues licks at an open jam. Thanks!

    The tab lesson is very clear and helpful, thanks. I just recently got the full course and it looks great. Just getting started but will let you know if it can even teach an old dog like me.

    thx griff, i already knew how to read tab, but i always listen to things i already knew to pick up a few things i might have missed.

    also, a note to you beginners, always get your guitar in tune before every practice or playing session.
    EADGBE LOW TO HIGH OR 654321 STRINGS.
    buy a tuner, i have the boss tuner and buy a metronome. i also have a boss metronome.

    I’ve noticed a lot of people saying thanks for the free lesson and I’ll buy it soon as I can. Well, I bought it and I can tell you it’s worth every penny and more.
    Griff, Thanks for the web lessons and the course, I’m 57 and haven’t played in a while, but you have motivated me to start practicing again. Good players are everywhere, Great teachers are hard to find.

    For those of us with a limited internet connection (time or bandwidth) could you please always provide a download link for these videos, as you did in the Blue Junior video.

    I am in the desert in North Africa and these blogs and lessons are keeping me sane!

    I love the BGU DVD course by the way.

    Thanks,

    Hey Griff, good one. I never realised it was so simple. The reason is that I was used to seeing a whammy bar and thought that is how they make those fantastic sounds. Wrong!As well I have been playing keyboards for so long and they have a little wheel that you push to get those shaky sounds. Now as for the advanced tab reading I finally understand how it is really done, and it is a lot better than on a keyboard that is for sure. Thanks Mate, Peter. (Down Under)

    Griff,
    I ordered your DVD,s a while ago through another email listed above. But please keep sending these to this address. I enjoy recieving them,a nice bonus for the day when one arrives. Since I don’t recieve them at the other email, you must only send them to people who have not bought. You should send them to the pre buyers and the have boughts. It’s a reminder to spend some time on the guitar snd a pleasure to get and read. Thanks,Mark

    Hey Griff,

    Nice job. I like the yellow cursor while you talked. It helped me follow visually. Also, I liked the guitar examples as it helped me hear the visualization. I hope to be buying your lessons soon!

    Interesting… I’m still somewhat uncomfortable reading TAB, so this has helped somewhat. One thing, though, it was very difficult actually seeing the notations on the video. They were pretty small. I attempted to magnify it, but only the print on the rest of the page was enlarged.

    Thanks Griff, for all the information you’re putting out to us! I haven’t picked up your course (yet), although hope to soon. As soon as I know if I’m going to keep my job (as so many others I’m sure are hoping to do…). In the meantime, your free instructions are awesome!! Again, Thanks!!
