Hello GmC fans,

After a long search through the forum, it's time to post a few questions that are still unanswered for me. mad.gif

The first is about tablature notation.

On a lesson, I found these tab :

I found that the "g" is a grace note mellow.gif .

What does that mean? What is it for?

It's like hidden note. Like it sounds you wanted to go for it but didn't really played it out, it is guessed that that note should have been there. There would be no mistake if you play it or not but it's there writen for you.

Well well thank you for the answer.

For example in the beginning of the john Mayer style lesson, there is a grace note.
I tried with and without it.
Without it, it really doesn't sound very nice.

Would it be incorrect to say that it's a kind of mini-hammer-on?(on this tab)

Yeah, I usually see what the instructor plays and it's generally a hammer-on or a slide.

Cool this is not a forum, it is live chat!

New question
Feel free to add more information about the questions! wink.gif

The "L" is a tied note.
As we can see, on the above tab, it appears just after the slide.
On the video, it is just a slide.

What's that for?

The L just means that you hold the note longer. It's "tied" so you get a larger note value and you often use it when you have long notes that's so long that it doesn't end until the next bar or even later.

"L" is tied and we use it to get longer duration of note,
throughout 2 bars per example.

As for grace note, it's more like prenote,
played right before real note note and there are
few way to connect them, like hammer-on, slide, pull-off etc. smile.gif
