What does R mean in tabs?

'r' in Guitar TAB means to release a bend. Sometimes this is shown if a bend needs to be held for a long time, so you know when to lower it again. 'pb' in Guitar TAB means to pre-bend a note before you pick it. You push the string up to the correct pitch, then pick the note before releasing it or holding it.
