Hi Filip,

The letters indicates the relative duration of a note.
It's a Guitar Pro Sofware notation:

Duration Legend

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

Hope it helps!

Filip there should be Tab Legend bellow every tab that shows all the rhythm values. You can also download guitar pro as all these tabs were made in that software.

Haha nice smile.gif

I just remembered something... Most of these tabs that you find with video lessons here actually have guitar pro file available for download. As you know guitar pro plays back all the notes and rhythms so if instructor did great job with guitar pro you can expect very pleasant and accurate learning with guitar pro by itself smile.gif

Thats great to hear Filip!

You can search lesson by instructor, style, technique, rating and see them by date posted. Each way has its advantages, I suggest starting with rating and technique, then move to your favorite instructor of course smile.gif
