I believe this is called TAB or tablature. I don't/cant use it myself so I hoped one of our more savvy members would have helped, but we don't get many views at weekends as a rule. I hope this helps?

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.

You need to format it in a mono-spaced font so that it spaces correctly (use the "courier" font, which is installed on every modern OS that I know of).

The names at the top are the names of the chords (in your example C, G Aminor, F), then read the portion below, which looks like the six strings on your guitar, from left to right, as a bar of music.

So the first bar is a 'C', play it with four beats, the first two are only the A, D and G strings, the third beat is five strings, and the fourth beat is back to three strings ...

Hope that helps.

#### Re: How to read the diagram?

Why i didn t found this before.
Now i find one explanation after the other.

i understood you well richard.
i saw the chords, but somehow i didn t understood the numbers.
these are the points on the guitar to get the chord...1 on tÂ´string b ...pressing down string b on fret 1...0 would be just the string b
i feel really a little stupid.
But it helped that you said that the signs have to stand in a row.

thaaank you!

#### Re: How to read the diagram?

No worries, glad it helped; while you're in the chat corner, you may as well let us know a little bit about yourself, what level of guitar you are at, etc.

Cheers
