    X can mean open string, or do not play at all, or muted.
    If you buy a Guitar-Player magazine or one of the similar mags
    there's usually page or two (in the end maybe) explaining about the Tabs.

    I know whats on your mind, so dont &#33;

    Also, in Sheets i think its called a Rake.

    This is quote from Total Guitar, Tab Guide:
    X markins represent notes and strings
    that are muted by the fretting hand when
    struck by the picking hand.
    (found a Mag and had to check it out,lol...)
