Hello, I am pretty new to GMC, and I have only been playing a year. I have not seen some of the stuff in the tablature that follows the videos. Example: L What he heck does 3 L 3 mean on any string? 12pbr? 12br? Is there a place that I have overlooked that can get me through these issues? Is this how the software Guitar Pro denotes slides, bends, etc.? I am used to the way Ultimateguitar.com does their tabs. Thanks

That is indeed how GuitarPro exports the tabs smile.gif

L is a tie note, keep on fretting that fret! (it is used for tieing together two notes in guitarpro to make a longer note)

br is bend then a release to orginal note, so you are playing the note you are fretting not bending anywhere (as in stop bending and get the string straight!!)

pbr is a prebend with a release at the end, bend the string up first without it sounding (will need to mute it) then pick it and then return the string to a straight position...will kind of sound like a downward slide.

and just for kicks...this may help you out too....

Thanks Deeproots for putting that legend up.


Judging by the questions he was asking it looks like he is practicing my lesson "George lynch" one. I certainly agree that Guitarpro is rather confusing how it exports the TAB. If you download the complete tab though there is a legend at the bottom.
