VIBRATO ARM (AKA WHAMMY BAR)
the note is picked, then the whammy bar is raised and lowered to the pitches shown in brackets.
scoop - depress the bar just before striking the note and release. Doop - lower the bar slightly after picking note.
note sustained, then the vib is depressed to slack. square bracket used if a long-held note has new articulation applied.
sound the note and ‘flick’ the tremolo bar with picking hand so it ‘quivers’. results in a ‘gargling’ sound!
a capo creates a new nut, so the above example has the guitar’s ‘literal’ 5th fret now as the 3rd fret.
