    pretty simple question about bass. when you slide you only play the first note, the second note is just a slide carried from the first note, right? for example -5/6- in this case you would play the 5th fret then slide to the 6th and that's all right?

    i'm pretty sure this is right but i was just wondering is this same in all tablature or do you play the second note in some tabs?
     
  2. yep.

    If you have to play the note u slided to it'll look like this

    E--6/7-7----

    if not it'll just be like this

    E--6/7-----

    hope this answers your question.

    later
     
  3. yea one note. just like a hammer on/ pull of. you pluck once with right hand but hear two notes
