Tablature with multiple numbers on one string

• Mar 29, 2013 - 13:38

Does anyone know why there are multiple numbers on one of the tablature strings in this excerpt?


Hi Chen -

I'll add my guess to Soichi's. :-)

The comment in the upper left of the score says, "Three gtrs.", so maybe there are three instruments playing it?

Also above the numbers is an asterisk. Does this point to something that explains what's going on?

Good luck.

Hi Chen -

It looks to me as if my guess was correct. The text for the asterisk says, "Highest gtr. indicated to right of slashes in TAB." So it looks like all three guitars are notated on the same tab staff and the 1st and 2nd guitars are playing the same string, but different frets.

What do you think?
