What does it mean when you see 12g14? I have searched online for tab info, but haven't seen this before.

Thanks!

Well buddy, who cares. Both notes are in the scale. Use 'em both at will, and improvise some, instead of statically playing someone else's stuff tongue.gif

Sorry for posting rubbish, I know you didn't ask for this.

Edit:
After hearing it, it's a bend.

If you noticed, B and G are very close on the keyboard.

It's a grace note smile.gif
This might not be the best explanation, but a grace note (in this case) is a very short slide, hammeron, pulloff or bend up to the target note. I use a few different graces in this tab.

A grace note is a note that you play for effect and doesn't affect key or the mood of the song. Could be picked, hammer on, pull off, a quick bend, harmonic, or anything barely hinted.

ye biggrin.gif the point of a grace note is to add emphasis and feeling to the note it graces, the next note. A good example a heard somewhere was that a grace note is equal to the colour of the napkins when deciding what to chose from the menue.
