picking is just the beginning. There are also hammer-ons, pulloffs, slides etc.

no, chords can be tabbed out too.

Here is an example:
Aldrine's "Red and Silky"




A|---------------5--s-7-s--5--------------------
E|----3----------5--s-7-s--5--------------------
C|----2----------5--s-7-s--5--------------------
G|------------------------------------------------

A|------------------------------------------------
E|-----------5BEND--3-----3--3-s-5-----------
C|----2-------------------4----------------------
G|------------------------------------------------

A|---------------5--s-7-s--5--------------------
