Just let the note ring or sustain?

Means play a note, then let it ring or "sound" for a while.

Usually we would also use the whammy bar or bend a little to sound a little sweeter.

A ghost note is a note played so very quietly, and so very muted, that the actualy tone and pitch seem to be inaudible, sounding like a note is still played... but strangely isn't really heard or comprehended...

I'm 100% sure that is wrong.

Well there's also "ghost notes" that unbroke in speakers make. They can be really irratating.

Probably not what you're looking for, just throwing it out there.

well after looking it up a bit
Ghost notes are when you hold down a note without sounding it by either plucking it or hammering it
You'll get a slight sound, but it's very light
i think they are hard for people to start learning
because when you start off you feel like you 'have' to pick the note
so say for example if you had to play (9)-10
the (9) is a gost not, so when playing it just put your index finger on the 9th fret normally but dun pick it, then play the 10th fret by putting your finger on it and picking it

humm i think thats it
hope it helped

Yes but there has to be a beat there instead. It needs to sound like it should have been on that beat but wasent

Yeah, AFAIK a ghost note is a note played really quietly, very subtly.

It just spices it up a bit :wink:
