    as far as I understand:
    / = forward slide (e.g. 2/4 means slide from 2nd fret to 4th fret)
    \ = backword slide
    * = not sure but some people use for denoting pinch harmonics
    ^ = bend (e.g. 15^17 means bend the 15th fret until it sounds like 17th fret)
    ! = not sure
    x = do not play this note
    () = ghost note

    there are some others like ~ for trill and h for hammer down and p for pull up.
    Hope the above helps.

    Rock on !!!
