Just a slide using only your fretting hand? Don't pick it basically

There are two kinds of slide: "Legato" and "Shift"

A Shift slide is where you pick once, slide up or down and pick again when you reach your target note.

A Legato slide is where you pick, slide and then DON'T pick at your target note; most of what people call 'slides' are the legato version.
