I've looked, but Google keeps interpreting "bis" as German(?)
Example:

|----------------|-------|-----------------------|-------|  
|-------7-----7--|-------|--------------7-----7--|-------|  
|-------8-----8--|--bis--|--------------7-----7--|--bis--|    
|----7-----7-----|-------|-----------6-----6-----|-------|  
|----------------|-------|-----------------------|-------|  
|--7-------------|-------|---------0-------------|-------|

"bis" is just Latin for "twice", it's a pretty common expression in romance language countries, not so much in other ones, I guess. I had never seen it in tablatures before, but I suppose the meaning should be to repeat the previous segment.

  • I kinda guessed that, as I know the piece, but was frustrated that I couldn't find any reference to it anywhere. Also, I don't speak Latin. :)

    In fact, our word biscuit has the Latin meaning of "twice cooked." :)
