what does (p) mean?
In what context?
pull off? that would be something like 8p7
do you mean on a tab? Cause if so I think it means pulloff.
when i'm looking at a tab (take a look around by limp bizkit for example), it says 5--7--(p)--5. what does that p mean?
that would mean you pull off from the 7 to the 5. so you have your third finger on seven and your first on 5 at the same time. play the string on seven, then without hitting the string again, pull off using your third finger to play the 5
it means pull your finger off the string.
some one should post the tab guide for the beginner guitar players
