well that thing up there^^ is called "tabs" its a way to read guitar music other than reading sheet music. On your guitar there are spaces and are divided up into 21- 24 spaces. These spaces are called frets. So like the first "fret" (space is called the first fret, and as you go down its first fret, second fret, 3 fret and it goes on.

the letters on the side are the strings of your guitar. e being the thinest string, and E being the fatest string. So look at your guitar and play every string from thinest to thickest.

e---1-2-3----------------

now you see numbers on the e string, guess what you have to do with the frets? yes, you press down the string with the correct frets, and there you played notes on guitar
