Meeting Mandolin Tablature

Part of the Mandolin For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

Tablature, or tab, is a form of musical notation based on fingering rather than musical pitches. The four horizontal lines in this figure represent the four pairs of strings on the mandolin, with the first string (e) being the top line and the fourth string (g) being the bottom line. The numbers indicate which fret to play.
