Yeah, I'm not 100% on what this means, it seems like it's just a slide from the first to the second power chord. Or does it mean to just slide up two frets and mute the strings? It just seems odd that the string its sliding to isn't even being played which is why I'm confused. I'm not really new or anything just unfamiliar with guitar pro.

That means use the your guitars tremolo arm, I'm guessing up 2 tones or 2 semitones.

How are the tonal properties of stop signs, anyway? They're made of aluminum, right?

Does it say W/ bar? No. Then play the 2nd note of the G-string. Jeese, learn to read standard notation, not just tabs. You play the A on the G-string.

In guitar pro this does actually mean use the tremelo arm, not play the 2nd fret on the G string.

Yea.. I don't know how to read standard notation well. But I think whoever tabbed this song out meant to slide up two semitones judging by the way it sounds and then mute it. Because you don't actually hear the A note at all. So maby me posting this was kind of pointless. But eh, thanks anyways.

Wtf are you talking about? That indicates a whammy bar in GP5.

And you need to learn to read GP tabs. Until then, stfu.

Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

Yup, whammy bar up. This is actually a song I play too and that confused me at first then I realized what it was. I'm used to the whammy notation being below the tab which is where you see it when you go down with the bar. This is just the first song I've seen tabbed with a bar up and I wasn't aware that it showed up in a different place in the notation.

Wow good job proving you are retarded.

If you could read standard notation, you'd see that the 2nd fret of the G string is not being played.

I noticed that, too, but I didn't want to say anything because I don't know the song and don't know GP tab notation. There is no A note played in the standard notation above it.

Also, is the E string tuned down to D (based on my reading of the standard notation)?

I'll repeat it, that is a whammy bar in Guitar Pro.
