Ed. Guitar - Learning by Tab (76* d) RE: Guitar - Learning by Tab 04 Nov 04

Where TAB is far superior than standard musical notation is in terms of giving the player 'positions'

Whereas the piano only gives one way of sounding the D above middle C, the guitar offers several options. If a fairly inexperienced guitarist was just provided with the dots, s/he would probably struggle to play a piece in the open position, when it might be much easier half way up the fretboard (or with a different tuning). TAB tells the player that important information.

TAB certainly isn't the be all and end all, but it definately has it's uses.
