Okay so i've been in the beginners section and i read pretty much all of it.... so i move on to the big stuff which i can with about an hours worth of work but i stop myself from playing or even learning it because at the bottom it shows stuff that i don't understand and i want to fully understand something before i know how to play it...

So my question is do you think I should just go ahead and learn how to play the other stuff..

Or stick with the begginer stuff untill i get it...

That's the chord progression of the song. The numbers to the left give you timing: 4 beats per measure in this case. Think of the progression as the rhythm guitar of the song. So in its simplest form, you'd strum Dm (D minor) four times, Bb four times, F four times, etc. The progression of the chords also gives you the keys the song is in at a particular time, which allows you to improvise with the correct scales.

Honestly, it'll all come to you as you practice the lessons (and read the theory forums!) Don't worry if it's hard at first. It really becomes simple over time. Use the lessons to improve your technical prowess and the theory will follow.
