Guitar 4 uses a harmonic technique known as "harp harmonics".  This involves
fretting the tabbed notes with the left hand while using the right hand to
perform natural harmonics by plucking the string with your thumb and using your
first finger to touch the string to produce the harmonic.  If you're not sure
how to do this search YouTube for "harp harmonics" to see it being done.

The harmonics you play in this part are one octave above the tabbed notes.  The
following tab shows you where your right hand should be producing the harmonics
for each of the fretted notes in the main tab:
