View Full Version : What does this symbol mean?

I saw this symbol in a You Tube piece of music and I couldn't find out what it means. <12> The tab ran something like this

7 | 7

I Know you music theorists out there will know the answer. I searched google until I am seeing double, and couldn't find this symbol. I can't get the lines to set up properly but between the two 7's the line ran straight up to the unknown symbol.

Maybe it's someone's idea of indicating an octave jump. :)

Harmonic at the 12th fret?

That's what I take it to mean also.
