Hey folks

Pretty new to the site, and I am wondering what this means;

12b(13)r12

What to do when a integer is inside this (--) ? Another dumb question? xD

--------------

And; " r12 " = ???


Thx in advance

12b(13) means to bend (b) the 12th fret to be the same pitch as if you played the 13th fret (13). The r12 at the end means to stop bending it to make the pitch back at the 12th fret's pitch.

(--) is a ghost note, almost without sound
the b is for a bend and then a reverse bend to go back to the first note
