From what I see and know of tabs you will play all the notes at one time. It is not a strumming pattern but the tricky part is the positioning of the fingers. For example . on the tab you see 3 0 2 You will pluck these strings all at once. Now here is the tricky part.There are certain finger positions you will need to figure out. On 3 02 for example , and this is picking part by the way, on 3 use the third finger,on 0 use the second, on 2 the thumb, now let's take the tab 2 3 0, you will use the following fingers to pick the strings, 2 the third finger, 3,the index and 0 the thumb ; 0 the 3 is the second finger and the 0 is he index; on 2 3 ,2 the second finger and 3 the thumb.. I hope gave you some idea of the style and the fingering , this is classical style. I'm trying to explain the fingering positions you will need for the strings and to pick them all at once. The thing about classical is that it will take time to get used to the fingering and you might want to slow down and try to get used to the feel, and try each one several times. It takes a while to get used to and the fingering is really what needs to be concentrated on here. The thing about tabs they aren't always explanatory.I'm including what is the midi file to this(I hope this is the right one to give you an example of how it sounds.)
I used to have a nylon string classical guitar,I played on ,it was a yamaha, still wish I had it. I have a steel string baby taylor now and it makes it easier to play barre chords but not classical..The neck on the classical was wider,so it was a bummer trying to play barre chords on it lol. But I could more easily maneuver my hands when it came to playing classical,easier to pick with fingers.

I hate playing with tabs. I find it much easier to play from regular musical notation. If you don't know how to play from regular musical notation, use tabs only as a means to get started. Otherwise you will be very limited in what you can play.
On this song first one has to tune the "G" string to "F#"
I don't know that the fingering makes that much difference. (I've always ignored fingering; lazy, I guess.)
On the first chord play three strings.
first string (highest), on third fret
second string, open
fourth string, second fret
next chord, same
1st string, third fret
2nd string open
5th string, second fret
I played through it. It sounds nice, but I'm really slow at playing with tabs.

I'm slow at playing tabs too Pablo, Classical music is a more complicated style and it takes lots of practice.. I'm into other music as well. Alot of times the tabs don't explain alot like the beat or count.I'm going to try your way Pablo and see how it sounds.
