There are numerous types of tab and tab software. Some forms of tab have the "notes" on the line and other types have them between the lines -- and that's confusing to a lot of people. Sometimes the notes are 8th notes, sometimes 16th notes so in order to understand and play tab, you have to do some figuring on what's happening in the tab.
There are also good and bad tabs -- some are so confused that they need to be thrown away. Some are so intricate that only a pro could play them. Then there are the good tabs that are in the intermediate range and just about everyone can play and understand them. You'll just have to figure out which is which.

TB: I agree that there are some really "bad" TABs. I put Buckey's "Back Up And Push" right near the top. For the nearly good enough ones, I can read music well enough to group the 1/8 and 1/16 notes into what I call "Scruggs blocks". These make sense to my head. Learning BITH is now a pleasant puzzle, not a problem.
Can anybody guess what was used to write the TAB in the Scruggs book?
