Play the first note, then bend the string with the playing finger (helped eventually by the other fingers) until you hear the next note (in the tab example, a whole step bend, from E to F#). There are also 1/2, 1 1/2, 2 steps bends.
Bend then release back to the first note.
Pluck only the first note, then hammer the second at a higher fret.
Pluck only the first note, then pull the second at a lower fret.
Fret a note (or notes) and then move (slide) to another fret without taking the pressure off your finger (fingers) as you move.
Repeatedly bend the pitch up slightly, and then let the note back down to the original pitch.
Tap with the index or midfinger at the written fret.
Touch the string lightly (don't press down) over the fret bar then pluck.
Pick the string, then touch the edge of your right hand thumb.
Touch the string slightly with the palm of your right hand.
