Re: Note count
Tabs is an easy, convenient way to show where to postion fingers on strings to play notes but you really have to know the piece you are playing to understand it.
To know the actual note, length of beat and where it is in the bar (measure) then I am afraid you will have to learn to read a music score which is more difficult but well worth the effort.
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” -Plato
