i. means press 2nd fret 1st string (say with ur index finger)
ii. strike(strum) the 1st string
iii. thn as da string is vibrating/ringing press the 4th fret 1st string with anothr finger quickly (say the ring finger).. without removing da index finger from da 2nd fret.

One thing.. da examples u gave 10p12 and 12h8 is not possible..
read my post for hammer on and pull off 2 figure tht out..
u must hav written tht randomly..
10p12 shud be 10h12 actually or 12p10
12h8 shud be ..12p8 actually or...8h12

u can find bettr lessons if u srch da forums or the net..
these r my tips
P.S. not copied frm ny website.
