The "L" meaning is the most common question in my lessons so here what I've replied in one of them:

"A tie is a curved line connecting the heads of two notes of the same pitch, indicating that they are to be played as a single note with a duration equal to the sum of the individual notes' note values.
It's not important if you are reading tabs because we don't use note values. The "L" is generated when I export the tabs from the guitar pro where you have all the note values (including the tied notes)."


Let me know if you have another questions! smile.gif

Hm, how exactly do tied, ghost, and grace notes work?

I see them often in tablature but aren't sure how to do them...

It's just a new note value (longer... if you have a eight note conected with curved line to another eight note, that would be the same that if you had a quarter note). The "L" symbol doens't matter when you are reading tabs... it appears when you export a guitar pro file to a text file.
