Subject: RE: Learning to play the guitar
Please learn to read music and tablature, but do it while you're learning the instrument. Music is harder but can be swapped between musicians; tablature will help you to find the notes but not a lot else - tab's great if you've got an idea of how the tune goes. Chord boxes are great if you want to strum or pick while someone sings or plays a melody instrument. Music's good for following the shape of a tune for sight readers.
