The +'s are the 4 beats per measure, or what it's called.
For example you count 1,2,3,4, and that's the four +'s
Don't bother looking at them if you can fix the timing

*The 13h15p13 etc.. is done lots of times, on the live video he does some tapping
with his pickinghand in the 5th fret at the same time. That's either to look cool, 
or it actually makes some sounds that are not heard! Do what you like...
