    I'm trying to play this song but I dont know what something means. Here is an example straight from the tab:

    |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    |--4----6----12---11---7----6-------------------------------------------------|
    |--x----x----xx---xx---x----x-------------------------------------------------|
    |--2----4----10---9----5----4-------------------------------------------------|
    |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

    What does the "x" mean in that tab?

    It means the string is muted. Rest your finger against the string so when it's plucked it doesn't ring out.
