The open 5th string sounds better because it can ring out while you play the next notes. That string acts as a drone (note that the piece is in G major). If you played that note on the 5th fret of the 1st string, the note would end immediately because the next note would be on the same string. Also note that if you played that G on the 1st string, your left ...
It may be a hammer-on to the 24th fret.
The slash is a slide (specifically a slide down) and the note you see is a half rest. It is just like any other slide except you just do not end your slide on a note you just rest instead. In this case you would start from the 12 fret and slide down and eventually rest. A slide like this is just used for effect and there are slides that do the opposite ...
Ah it seems to be just a short tie. Simply being a hammer-on from 0 to 2 and a quick 4 ie: --0h2-4--
This tab is very rough-looking, but if you need to read it, it is manageable. The tab is laid out as follows: D5 ... G e|---5----...---- B|---3----...--3- G|---2----...--0- D|---0----...--0- A|--------...---- E|--------...--3- Strings are labelled assuming this is in standard tuning, I did not watch the video The following holds true regardless ...
Remember when you were not very good at playing a chord cleanly? You've got to go back to that again, but on purpose this time. The fleshy part of a finger, probably the one pressing the A string, will touch but not press the D string. The missing of that note gives a different voicing to the chord. There is no 5 in it. If any note can be missed from a ...
Your best bet may be to organize your music using tools that make it comparably easy to produce different forms of output from the same input. When using, say, LilyPond, the same input used for producing guitar tablature will equally well produce standard staff notation, and expanding lead sheet information to piano chords is also straightforward. When ...
For most rock players, what is known as the "lead sheet" format is probably the most recognizable. It generally has a key signature, the melody written out in standard music notation, chord symbols, sometimes with inversions/neck positions/tabulature blocks for guitarists, maybe any distinctive bass part notated, and lyrics. It's a "road map" format.
