Guitar music is generally written in one of two forms. The first is by using guitar tabs, which is a concise way to write and understand guitar music. The second is through standard music notation, which requires a deeper understanding of musical structure. For most regular artists, music books are created for each of their albums that contain guitar tabs as well as standard music notation for each of their songs.
