Hey i have a question to add onto Brokestones Q.

What does the "g" mean im seeing it alot in the David Gilmour 2 lesson i can tell if its just a really quick slide or a hammer-on they both sound ok to me im just curious so i can know for future tabs

Ex. B||--10---8g10--------

As for Brokestones Q (Srry if im not supposed to answer since im a huge beginner) but the "L" means its a tied note
I think...... someone will have to comfirm whether im right or not. tongue.gif

I think the g means "ghost" note. Basically in the example above you play the 8th fret and then immediately play the 10th fret usually by a hammer on. Thus the ear just hears the 8th fret before the 10th fret note. It creates a more flavoured note rather than just playing the 10th fret from the get go.

Tied note means keep playing the same note.

This should help you out for future tabs you may look at:

W - whole
H - half
Q - quarter
E - 8th
S - 16th
T - 32nd
X - 64th
. - note dotted
|-n-| - n-tuplets


Tablature Legend
----------------
L - tied note
x - dead note
g - grace note
(n) - ghost note
> - accentuded note
NH - natural harmonic
AH - artificial harmonic
TH - tapped harmonic
SH - semi harmonic
PH - pitch harmonic
h - hammer on
p - pull off
b - bend
br - bendRelease
pb - preBend
pbr - preBendRelease
brb - bendReleaseBend
\n/ - tremolo bar dip
\n - tremolo bar dive
-/n - tremolo bar Release up
/n\ - tremolo bar inverted dip
/n - tremolo bar return
-\n - tremolo bar Release down
S - shift slide
s - legato slide
/ - slide into from below or out of upwards

~ - vibrato
W - wide vibrato

And by the: questions like "should i slide into it or hammer on.." can be answered by watching the videos...they are the most important things on the site after all wink.gif
