    So I was looking at the tabs for a song and I'm a little confused.

    |--------------12---------------12/----------------|
    |o----------/14--------------/14------------------o|
    |o----0-------------3-3-0----------------0h3-0----o|
    |--------------------------------------------------|


    When it says /14 I know "/" means slide down however, where I would be going from?

    For instance I know 2/5 would mean slide from the 2nd fret to the 5th fret.

    I'm not sure how to explain my confusing any better than this.


    and for the record the song is "give it away" by rhcp

    From anywhere, no specific note. Slide up to the note the way you find comfortable and that sounds like on the record. In this song the goal is to get that purring sound.

    Try it the other way around though, listen to the record to figure out the line and use the tab for when you're stuck. The tab you have isn't nessecarily wrong, but it doesn't do the line justice either. Which is common with tabs.

    usually if there is no note to slide from it's just a quick grace note slide from one or two frets above your target note....
