I've found a few ambiguities while studyinf from the Bei tutorial.

First, does the glissando start/end from/to a undefined note?

Below, whats the symbol which reminds of 'Go' pluck but with a dot below?
Also, In the beginning of second bar, theres a * symbol which lead to 6. Is it a downward gliss from undefined note?

You might notice, that that's from 'Small river flows' beginning.

By the way, there is a typo in Bei's tutorial book. It's in chapter 7 on the explanation of downward gliss. It should be "...across multiple strings from high to low." not "...low to high.". Wink

Yes.

I think you're referring to the fermatas (two of them all together, on top of notes), which means you hold the note longer than the value. How much longer is a matter of context and interpretation.

Yes.
