Figure: tablature

tablature plays power chords on a guitar with feedback. The tablature figure shows the score in staff notation at the top and tablature at the bottom. Additional information on rhythm is added below the tab.

Tablature or tab is a type of notation for the guitar. The notation shows fingering rather than pitch. The tab shows the six strings of the guitar with the first string at the top and the sixth string at the bottom. A number indicates the fret to be fingered.

It may be easier to read and write music in tablature notation than in staff notation.
