Hi fellow listers,

following all the heated discussion about the pros and cons of tablature, 
something left me wondering: Can you please clarify to a guitar-playing 
non-lutenist how tablature distinguishes:

        < { g8 e a f g e f d | e c d b c2  }
          \context Voice = other { c,4 c c a | g g c2 } >

from the (differently sounding, without a doubt):

        < { g4 a g f | e d c2 }
          \context Voice = other { c,8 e c f c e a d | g c g b c2 } >

when both would lead to the following in French tab for 6-course renaissance 
lute in G (I'm not doing stems here, they don't matter for this example):


which, according to the guidelines posted here by raybro would sound more like 
a third variety:

        < { g4 a g f | e d c2 }
          \context Voice = other { r8 e4 f e d8~ | d c4 b8 c2 }
          \context Voice = third { c,4 c c a | g g c2 } >

How do you indicate the two aforementioned ways of execution in the tab?

True, this example is contrived and neither elegant nor beautiful, but it 
serves to illustrate my problem.
