R means the root note.
b means flattened note (a semitone down, e.g Ab = G#)
# means sharpened note (a semitone up, e.g A# -> B)

OOH. Nice. Nice nice nice.
That got me thinking.
I originally wanted to make a book on three guitar techniques that greatly accelerate playing and theory understanding. But I guess I'll just post it as a lesson here since I have a good soul.
