As you can see above, we used letter-spacing: -4px  for <h1> and letter-spacing: 2px for <h2>. Note that the negative value is to decrease the space between letters, as you can see in the text STUDYOPEDIA above.

Also, the positive value is to increase the space between letters, as you can see in the text Tutorials On Programming above.
