Well, the 5h7h8 is just an extended hammer-on.
The 5 is your index, but instead of using a pinky to hammer-on the 7 (if you use it) you use your ring finger on it and then follow through with your pinky on the 8.
No plucks in between.

Then a p7 is just a popped 7 I'm guessing. This is followed by a p5h7, which is a popped 5 and a hammer-on to 7, just like a 5h7.

I don't think that's a pop. I'm pretty sure it means pull-off and you actually play the string once (on the first 5) and the rest of them is all your fretting hand. It's a pretty simple/common thing that's just written out in a way that's annoying to read.

Whoops... You're right, it is a pull-off, now it makes more sense Smile

So, play the 5, hammer-on the 7 with your ring finger, hammer-on the 8 with your pinky, pull-off your pinky, pull-off your ring finger, hammer-on your ring finger.
