Ghost notes, pretty sure other guys will explain it clearly: you mute those notes till the point where you can't really tell the pinch but they still have their percussive/rythmatical quality. me thinks tongue.gif

Optional/Ghost notes - Don't pick them (hammer/hold) or just lightly pick, normally letting them ring out after previous note(s).

Judging by the ties used in the conventional notation written above I'd say they are not new notes to play, but rather a continuation of the ones just before (which they are the same as).

I do notice if I leave them out the riff sounds pretty much the same. Weird. I've seen those before but never knew what they were.


Thanks Guys.

In this particular example, my understanding is that they are notes that you don't play.. they sound out because you played them in the previous measure.

percussive notes that you play muted are usually shown with x's on the tab aren't they?

Mike
the a and the g string will ring, as said above, but the d string must be muted at the beginning of the 2nd bar

Those notes are tied and only the firts one it's played. They are notated this way because you can't put a note that it's longer that the remaining time of the measure, so you have to put the remining note in a new measure tied to the previus one and indicaiting the remaining duration.

Edit: I dont know if i'm being clear but just in case, when i said that you should play only the first note i'm not talking about the other notes on at the same place at the measue, what i meant is that you are not supose to play the notes in parentesis again but to let them ring.

Tie

in some cases one might tie two notes that could be written with a single note value, such as a quarter note tied to an eighth note (the same length as a dotted quarter). This might be because:
A barline is between the notes
The second note begins a metric grouping, falling on a stressed beat of the meter. This change in notation (choosing the tie rather than the longer note value) does not affect performance, but it makes the music easier to read.
