Understanding tablature

Guitar tablature is a common way to communicate songs and transcriptions. Tablature is a set of six lines that represent the six strings on the guitar. The lines represent the order of strings from Thickest to thinnest, with the thickest E string on the guitar being represented by the lowest line and the thinnest E string on the guitar being represented by the highest line. The numbers placed along the lines indicate the exact string to played at the exact fret number to produce the required note. The sequence of numbers represents the sequence of notes and should be read from left to right. Numbers that are vertically stacked on top of each other are notes that form chords and should be played at the same time.
