    How did you not understand the dots thingy? :eek:
    It's the single simplest diagram in existance!

    OK, the big thick line on the left it the (guitar head), the six horizontal lines are your strings, the vertical lines are the frets and the dots are where your fingers go. They're usually numbered, which relate to your fingers:
    1 = index finger
    2 = middle finger
    3 = ring finger
    4 = little finger

    Unless there's a different dots thingy out there?

    If you want guitar help, go to a guitar site. Not this site.

    You can search for them out there, but i recommend:

    www.ultimate-guitar.com

    And then post all your questions in the forum and you'll get loadsa help there.

    There are others like MXtabs but i'm on that one. And you don't get annoying pop ups.

    Also try www.cyberfret.com, www.about.com, www.guitartab.net, www.tabcrawler.com.

    They all have examples.

    As for tapping, it sounds odd on an acoustic, otherwise turn up your overdrive or distortion, and it'll sound better. It might be bc you're tapping the wrong places.
