I'm not 100% sure about you're problem with the Echord tablature. But if the problem you're having is the numbers are stacked on one another..that's to show you all the notes are played at once...as opposed to see ing the numbers spaced out..that's more of a single note melody or a lead guitar solo.
would be the open E chord...(the 0 are open strings) I'd also reccomend a book that explains "Barre" chords and the different positions as they're played all over the neck..the reason the particular song doesn't sound correct may be due to a difference in chord inversion, or placement...I'm not familiar with that particular song, but maybe another reader can help us out?...
