it's a dead note, and you let your fingers rest upon the strings without actually touching the fret board, kinda like letting your fret hand doing the palm mutes

tears don't fall right?

that's a pick slide
use the edge of your pick and slide down the two strings, like from the bridge to the top of the neck or neck to bridge

it really is a pick slide

dead notes would just have x's

if you have something like xx\\ with the slashes, it means it's a pickslide

and listen to the song, it's obvious
