comment Convert these to guitar tabs?
As a convention, I see capital letters meaning major and lower-case meaning minor.

comment What is the proper way to play this chord?
That's not a fifth chord. That's a note and it's octave.

comment Why do frets get closer as the notes get higher?
The over-arching rule for fret size is the Rule of 18, which states that a fret is placed 1/18th of the distance from the nut/previous fret to the bridge. Actually, 1/17.817. And that's not quite right in every case, as the G on the low E will tend to be sharp because of the string bending implicit in fretting and the width of the string. You can't really tune a guitar, but you can get closer...
