s means "spacer rest". It's an invisible rest. See Notation Reference, p. 39. 
you can use it in chord mode. It's not wrong to think in sixteenths but it's 
more common in 4/4 time to think in quarter notes or half notes. 10 sixteenth 
notes are equivalent to one eighth note and two quarter notes (or one half 
note). The eighth note belongs to the first half of the bar and the invisible 
half note rest just completes the bar (g4.+g8 + s2).
