In popular music, guitarists and electric bass players often read music notated in tablature,
which indicates the location of the notes to be played
on the instrument using a diagram of the guitar or bass fingerboard.
Tabulature was also used in the Baroque era to notate music for the lute,
a stringed, fretted instrument.
Notated music is produced as sheet music. To perform music from notation requires
an understanding of both the musical style
and the performance practice that is
associated with a piece of music or genre.
