    Can anyone explain to me how to play this, 0 / 7.
    I have this in a tab Im working on but just not sure how to do it.

    Thanks in advance,
  2. I believe that denotes a slide from an open string to the 7th fret of the same string.

    You would play the string open then slide up to the 7th fret. What song is it? Depending on the song you should be able to hear it.

    EDIT: We must of posted at nearly the same time... Your response wasn't there yet.

    The song is Metallica Fade to Black. So when I slide from open to 7, do I slide from 6 to 7 or 1 to 7? I just cant seem to get the proper sound.

    Maybe the tab isn't quite right. I've worked on several pieces where the tab says one thing in a particular section, but my ears hear another...try it an octave higher and see if the notes are correct there, or work on it until you think they ARE correct, then move it back down where it's supposed to be.
  6. You would slide up from the nut for a 0-7 slide such as that. (unless it is an octave up as ldervish said. I'm not famililiar with the bass part for that song.)
