Just a shot in the dark, but maybe it means the note is an octave higher than written (I think that it's supposed to be 8va though).

Generally that would be over a bar of rest. It could be a whole note rest, with a 4 over the bar, meaning 4 bars of rest.

he speaks the truth. though i can't see a meaning to what you've got there in that image. but it's probably a rest, for eight bars.

Whatever it is, it is at least a little ambiguous.

My guess is that you have eight bars of rests before the guitar comes in on the A/E notes. While those eight bars of rests for the guitar are running, some other instrument is playing some figure based on C major.

... just a guess....

Kinda like this...



Even though it is a horn part, they sketch in the three eighth notes on the bassoon part so as to help you come in at the right time - like in case you get lost counting bars.

Yeah, its hard to tell, and I would think they would make it a little more obvious, but I believe its 8 measures of rest.
