I was reading a guitar book(Guthrie Govan Creative Guitar I), and he used a tab symbol which I was unfamiliar with and not listed in Andrew's tab lesson:

There is no computer keyboard symbol (which kind of defeats the point of tab)so I will have to describe it here:

"5 and a 7 with a half circle above them joining the two notes" Logicially I would think this is a bend from a note on the 5th fret to the 7th fret note, or possibly a hammer on but I haven't seen it listed this way before.

Sorry if this is a lame question, but if Andrew doesn't have it listed in his Tab glossery, then it must not exist!!

I chequed the whole book and I didn't find anything strange. I think it's a hammer-on but to be shure, tell me in which page is it so I can look and give you a straight answer.

I think it's a hammer-on too, or as Muris said if it were the other way around from 7-5 it would be a pull-off. smile.gif
