Hey A&C Forum!
So i've been playing for a while now but have never asked this question, and it's been annoying me because I still don't know the answer to this. Sorry if this is a really stupid question, but I wanna know now.

What does this mean in tabs?



||------0------2--|-----0--(0)-----||
||o-----1------3--|-----1--(1)----o||
||------0----2----|-----2--(2)-----||
||----2----0------|---2------------||
||o-3-------------|-0-------------o||
||----------------|----------------||


I've always thought it meant let it ring, but now I'm not too sure.. what does it mean?

it's a ghost note - a note that doesn't have to be played but can be if the player wants to

Ghost notes are notes played softly, I think.

Quote from MXtabs:
Normal brackets () are sometimes used for grace notes or optional
notes so 'pointy' brackets <> is the usual choice for harmonics.

they are notes that can be played softly and optionally, like in the song californication by the RHCP, in the intro during the first measure there are several ghost notes
