^Those are all possibilities, but I've also seen them as sustained notes. Does the (9), for instance, appear after just a regular old -9-? Because I've seen it before where the tabber means you sustain that note.
But the harmonics or ghost notes could definitely be it, too.
Harmonics, but i don't know why they would be on the 11th fret..
Pinch harmonics maybe?
