Hi Guys, wondered if you could help with this:

e|---------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------|
D|--7-7-7-7--9-9-9-9-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11---|
A|--x-x-x-x--x-x-x-x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x---|
E|--5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9---|

you see the 'x' on the A string right? Does that mean play the A string or don't play it? If it's the latter I can't understand how you'd play this without accidentally hitting the A string?

maybe I'm missing something really obvious, sorry

Any help would be appreciated!

Means: no hit.

You can play in two ways
1) play with your fingers so you just can skip the a string
2) play with plectrum and mute the a string with the bridging index finger
