That depends on whether it's an A note or an A chord.

If you are talking about an "A" above the tabs, then you play an A Major triad. If it is the note "A" on the staff, then you just play an "A" note.

Might I give you some advice as you begin your experience as a guitarist. AVOID TABS LIKE THE PLAGUE!! Tabs tend to be the easy way out and I would say that 95% of the people who play guitar by reading tabs, through no fault of their own, can not play a song from beginning to end. They can only play certain parts of songs. If you really want to learn how to play guitar, learn how to read the style of music notation that is time tested and internationally recognized, and learn to read chord charts. Good luck in your endeavor!!!
