What's the difference? Can someone help me out?
Yeah, because it's funny to make fun of people that don't use English as a first language.
To the original poster. Here is what I found.
Definition of the Term Glissando
Example of the Sound
Sounds like a ten dollar word for the sound of a slide.
Lighten up will ya??!!
It's supposed to be us Brits who are losing our sense of humour.
oh yeah, sorry, i meant "sLIde". I was under the impression that a slide and glissando were different, I was hoping that someone could explain the difference?
i guess a slide is a type of glissando that only applys to stringed instruments?
Like I said, I think glissando is just the italian term for "slide". Most musical terms are italian.
The two terms mean pretty much the same thing on a fretted bass. A slide is just a slide from one note to another. It's also called a portamento. On a fretless instrument it comes out smooth. When you break it up into a series of notes, it becomes a glissando. Frets break it up for you, so there's no real difference on a fretted instrument.
Oh my god!!!
First, check out this. Pianissimo.
