I have a PIx 515e running IOS version 8 and ASDM version 6.  I am able to access the internet from all of my internal computers running 10.x.x.x addressess.  I am using PAT on the external interface.  My problem is when I create a firewall rule to allow inbound access to a webserver, etc; connections are being dropped.  I am new to Pix and I think i have hit a roadblock. I read in articles  that to allow inbound rules you have to create an ACL and a NAT rule.  Could someone please explain how to properly to this through the ASDM?

That is correct that you have to set up static NAT and create an ACL to allow the traffic.

Here is a link with instructions on the ACL construction with the ASDM:

Here is a link with instructions on setting up the NAT in the ASDM (specifically, look at the section on setting up "Static NAT"):
