The lines are the strings on your guitar.
In tab a number is placed on a string
to tell you what fret on that string to
place your finger......example below

E--2--4--5---------------------------
on the big fat E string press your finger on
the second fret then next press your finger
on the fourth fret and then the fifth fret....

Tab is read from left to right just like reading
a book...If there is a 0 that means open string.
above is a chord of Em...all strings are struck at the
same time, next is a chord Em but each string is
struck one string at a time.
