Greetings,

I signed up here at GMC to learn Ivan's O Come O Come Emmanuel and have never used a video teaching site before. Does the lesson consist of the videos of the song being played without further explanation? I see tablature under the Notes section but probably need a lesson in how to read it, I've only used regular music staffs before....

Is there another part of the lesson I'm missing?

Many thanks and Merry Christmas!

My suggestion is to start at the beginning. Click on the absolute beginners tab and start working. Andrew Cockburn has many videos on there and one of them talks about tab. Go through all of those videos and when you find something you are not proficient at, work on it. It's kind of like swimming: You have to know how to swim before you can do a backstroke. Best wishes! wink.gif

Great to see you found your way into the forum! smile.gif
Answer already sent via email.

I just found a good article on how to read tablature : https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...?showtopic=4141
Here is a video lesson on how to read tabs : https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/misc-less...ng-and-writing/

Cool thing as I mentioned in the email is that you can view standard notation using Guitar Pro software. I can send you a tab in standard notation via Private Message if you want?

Welcome to GMC and Merry Christmas! smile.gif
