Firstly, it is essential to grasp the concept of tablature. Apart from the small keys we use to open a can of soda or a file folder, “tabs” in the context of guitars often refer to guitar tablature.

There are several ways to learn tabs. The internet and guitar enthusiast magazines are the most accessible sources. Many websites offer free tabs, along with a rating system that indicates the difficulty level. Guitar magazines also use a rating system, and being reputable publications, they usually provide accurate guitar tabs.

The renowned writer/director Billy Wilder offered this piece of advice on screenwriting and filmmaking: “Grab ’em by the throat and never let go.”

This is what your first act, specifically, your initial 10 pages, should accomplish. The first act serves several purposes. It introduces your main characters, the setting, the time period, the theme, genre, and tone. This is the act where we meet both the protagonist and the antagonist.

In some films, we might not encounter the antagonist directly, but we are at least introduced to them, with hints of an ultimate revelation, as is often the case in mysteries. Even if we don’t see them yet, we are made acutely aware of their presence and the negative, often devastating, impact they will have on other characters in the story.

The first act also establishes the premise of the story: a saloon owner is surprised to see the woman he loves walk back into his life An Artist Portrait (Part Two) - This is the Part Two (and final part) of the true life story as artist written by Frank V.
