I need help with something that I didnt really know how to word right... if that makes sense.
http://911tabs.com/link/?3598470

what do the W's and E's and Q's stand for? and e+H?

Ive just been playing it, not taking note of what it means (Or says to do.)

Help would be appreciated.
Thanks

W = Whole note
H = Half note
Q= Quarter Note
E = Eighth Note.

R where there should be a number indicates Rest.

:D :D :D

Thanks Vic. :D

I would imagine 1/8 & 1/2 = 5/8.....although 5/8 of a note seems a little odd! Unless, of course, there's 8 notes to the bar, and you're playing that particular note for 5 of them.....

Great choice of song, BTW!

:D :D :D

I love that song. :) I really wanted to learn it on bass. I got it on Electric though.

Thanks for the Help Vic!

The tab shows an e and the e+H for those measures, which would add to 6/8. That's fine, except the song is in 4/4 time.

Which once again proves to me that it's high time I got off my lazy backside and learned to read standard notation!

:D :D :D
