comment What do the numbers on a guitar tab mean?
Yes, I've always knocked tab for lack of timing - unless it's accompanied by proper dots. However, looking at the example above, how simple to use 12 dashes instead of the 16 there, and put the numbers in the appropriate positions?

comment playing rhythms on Guitar
O.k. Most of the stuff I've seen has only the rhythmic pattern written in note value - so it seems both are available. I'd have thought, though, that any guitarist worth his salt would be able to work out down and up strums, although there are weird rhythms out there that can't be played without guidance.

Sorry, still not clear! I think you're saying that most guitar rhythm patterns are NOT written with strum direction. If so, we agree!

What do you mean in your penultimate para? Often rhythm patterns are written in notation form (crotchets, etc) and the direction of strum is left to the discretion of the strummer.

comment Identifying Modulations in Roman Numeral Analysis
Notice the 3rd chord from the end - it has a minus sign, and you correctly called it lower case. It's not the same as the C#7 at the top.

@MattL. - thanks, you beat me to it! So, maybe it's called V of V of V etc... How far does one go with secondary (tertiary) dominants?!

comment Identifying Modulations in Roman Numeral Analysis
In the way the chords are written. E = Emaj. C#7 = C# dominant 7, which contains a major 3.G#-7 = G#min 7, as the minus sign says minor. It's sort of NNS, but using Roman numerals, caps are to show major (or major 7,9, or dominant7,or 9, etc. Whereas lower case (i, ii, vi) show minors.

Just an observation - in the 1st line, you've called C#7 vi7. In E major, C# chords are normally minor, but this one's major. Should be VI7?
