I'm learning how to play the guitar and below all of the quarter notes and stuff like that, there is another six lined thing. There are little numbers on the lines, 1, 2, 3, 4, and they are placed in a specific order. what are the numbers for? What do they show you and why do you need them?

I think you are talking about tab. If so, each line represents a string and each number represents a fret. So if the first line has a 2, then you play the second fret of the first string (high e).

Yeah, I think you're talking about tab. If so then each line represents a string (usually the bottom line represents low E) and the numbers on the lines tell you which fret you're playing in. There's loads of other notation in tab as well like / and \ are used to notate slides, b is used to notate bends, r is used to notate releases, ~ is used to notate vibrato. They're some of the most common.
