That's part of the tab for Unforgiven by Metallica.

The problem here is I can't quite figure out what 4\-1--/4--1 means.

I tried sliding, bending, etc, and I still have no clue since both sliding and bending sound awful on that part. on the tab index it says / and \ are sliding, but I don't think that works out. Plus, why 2 different slashes?

Any help would be appreciated.

It's called a slur. You strike the 1st 4, then slide to the 1, and then to the 2nd 4. The only note you strike is the 1st 4. The point is to get a fluid sounding slide. Picture it like this:


E------------------
B------------------
G-4slide1slide4-
D------------------
A------------------
E------------------


Remember that you're ONLY striking the first 4 here.

Yeah, that makes sense. I'll try that.
