Tab Key:
b = bend (7b8 means bend the string at the 7th fret to make approximately
   the note the string would make if played at the 8th fret with no bend)
r = release bend
h = hammer on
p = pull off
s = slide (a quick slide, the two notes sound almost like one note)
/ = slower slide (sounds like two separate notes)
> = play string at specified fret and slide finger(s) down the string an
    unspecified distance
() = harmonics, (12) means lightly touch the string directly past the 12th
	fret then pick the string
~ = vibrato (vibrate note)


NOTE: When the one guitar plays a B7addE, it's played something like this:

   B7add11
