TAB question - Classical

I just bought a book of wedding guitar instrumentals for Classical guitar and while paging thru it found some moves that I don't truly understand.

I'm guessing this requires a right-hand tapping technique since these are simultaneous notes as well as not being natural harmonics?

x 3 x x 14 x and a few beats later is x 4 x x 17 x

Of course the high notes could be played an octave lower but it seems unlikely to be a typo.....

Am I on the right track?

Yep, although that first one is a bit of a wierd one being C against C#. The second one, C# against E is a bit more normal

Not the most common Classical Guitar technique, but I've seen Pepe Romero doing it

A :-)

Thanks Alan.

This will be a challenge since I've been under the operating assumption that frets above the 12th were just there for decoration since I can't reach them in any usable fashion :-)
