Tab is a transposition of the notes you play in a song, the numbers correspond to the fingerings/notes you play on the fretboard. Tab is arranged from the high e string on top, to the low E string on bottom.
So for example when you see
e----------
B-1--------
G----------
D-2--------
A-3--------
E----------
You place your fingers on the 3rd fret of the A string, 2nd fret of the D string, and the 1st fret of the B string and you have yourself a Cmajor chord :)
One downside to tab is that generally the duration of the notes aren't included.
I highly reccomend Power Tab or Guitar Pro, they both support tablature and standard notation. On top of that they will allow you to see and hear note lengths, intonation, time signatures, key signatures and a variety of other useful goodies haha!
Plus it's nice to be able to play along with a beat, even if it's just a simple midi click.
Which reminds me! Get a metronome! They are probably the single most useful tool in music lol!

SO basically, I need to learn music before I can read tabs. Ok...

Not at all man! Think of tab as a mirror to your fretboard. The numbers are the frets/notes that you play, so when you see 0 you play the open string, 1 is the first fret after the open string, 2 is second and so on.
Sorry if I'm not explaining it well.
What I was trying to say is that the length of the notes usually isn't included in tab, which means you have to figure it out by ear, or you can use one ofthe programs I mentioned, or both.
Power tab is useful because it gives you tabs and shows you how to play them basically.

Yeah. I brought my guitar to school on Friday. My English teacher promised me I could sing to the class. I did Radioactive by Imagine Dragons and everyone's saying I'm good at it. Now I'm even writing music.
