Reading the tabs


Hi! Im currently playing on a 9-holed ocarina and most of the tabs i see are filled with x's and lines, i just want too know what they mean so i can play.

I dont know what X is but in almsot every type of music note - is a rest so for example

note note rest note note rest rest

note note - note note - -

also just thought i should bring this up website owner / admins / mods it should not take 8 years for you guys to reply to any post
