I have been reading tab for 5 years now, I am all self taught, however i still do not know what () means, I've read through the tab lessons but no one talks about it. There was one comment that said the writer should have included ghost notes, is that what i am asking about?

If they are ghost notes how are they played?

ex:

e |---------------------------------------
B |---------------------------------------
G |-------------------------2--------------
D |--------------(0)-------------------------
A |-------2-------------------------(5)-------
E |---------------------------------------

edit: the parenthesis got formatted out, im curious about parenthesis
"I have good eye-sight, insight, and foresight. How could an
intelligent hare make such a silly mistake?"

I'd like to say those are considered optional. I never really got a solid definition on it, but I've been playing for a while as well, and that's how I've interpreted it on most tabs. If that's not it, then that tabber needs to be clear on what that means.

e|--6--|
B|--5--|
G|--7--|
D|--7--|x2586
A|--5--|
E|-----|


Play until she breaks up with you.

You should go like them...even if you don't like them.

That's what i've always thought they were, optional notes, but i have never seen it actually defined
"I have good eye-sight, insight, and foresight. How could an

They're ghost notes. You should play them very softly between the main notes.(In this example between the B and A note).
