I have played the guitar for 6 years now and have never seen this notation. What do these arrows mean?
EDIT: Bach Chaconne, arrangement by Edson Lopes, classical guitar (for electric guitar players: played with fingers, not a pick).

Thank you for including more information, it is very important to see and hear things in context, like knowing the key and time signatures in order to be able to give an accurate answer.
The notes happen at about 3:56 and are at the top of page 4. The arrows indicate shifting the positioning so the 1st finger extends towards the nut and playing the F and Eb with fingers 4 and 2. This allows the quick playing of the Bb of the double stop on the downbeat with the 1st finger.
