Stem and beam behavior in tablature

The direction of stems is controlled the same way in tablature as in traditional notation. Beams can be made horizontal, as shown in this example.

\new TabStaff {
  \relative c {
    g16 b d g b d g b
    \override Beam.concaveness = 10000
    g,,16 b d g b d g b
