I looked at the guitar tricks tablature symbols pdf, and these do not appear on it. What are these? I circled them in green. Surly these are not hammer on- pull off.

Those are ties. They indicate that the chord is to be held across the measure line. If a chord rings for longer than the available rhythmic subdivision notation, then it is tied to the next note or measure.

Hope that helps!
