Hi justin.. read your question and .that sounded alot like me in the past when I didn't know what the hell that was. anyway, a ghost note, normally denoted by a number in brackets like so (20) means the note is not picked and just gently tapped or the sound is very lightly made , to suit the mood of that part of the song.. does this answer the question? well..as in "cryin" by satriani ,listen to the part with the ghost note and listen carefully for the note that is intended.. and you'll hear the note faintly being made , but it's not picked,just perhaps tapped on gently. regards simon
