does anyone know exactly how this bit of tab is supposed to be played ? I understand the numbers of course but I've never seen this "W.C" or a circle around the notes, what does it mean ?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Because the standard notation above the TAB shows two unison notes the most logical thing is to say the notes on the G string are meant to be bent up a whole step to match the pitch of the notes on the B string. This is not the way bends are typically written in TAB and I have never seen W.C. before. Bends are usually written with a curved upwards arrow and “half” or “whole” is written above the arrowhead to indicate how much to bend the note.
I'd say that the circles around the numbers mean half notes (minims). Quarter notes would get no circle and a stem, eighth notes would get a stem and one flag, and so on.
No idea about W. C., though. I also wonder about the tuning of the guitar — if it is supposed to be standard tuning, then the tab does not match the score.
