I don't think anyone who doesn't already know what guitar tablature is
is going to care about this.

I think "string and fret notation" is baby-talking it.  I don't think
I've ever met a guitar player who wouldn't know what I meant if I said,
"hey, can you show me how to finger an F#7sus4 in the second position?"
or "hey, can you show me how to finger a two-octave A diminished
arpeggio at the fifth position?".

Well, okay, the ones who don't know any music theory wouldn't know what
I meant, but fuck 'em -- all they know is pentatonic minor anyway.  :)
