ex.

Well, try playing not open A. Play E string on 5th fret. Just pick the open A string and then slide quickly from first to second fret. Vice versa just go from second quickly to first and then release the string like you do in tapping.

im not sure what that was either, but his part about play the open string then basically a hit onto the 1st fret while sliding to the second. so you dont hold the first fret, just imaging your finger is on the nut (0) and push down and slide to the second, so it slides onto the first then second frets. of course you dont have to put your finger on the nut to do it.

That tab you posted is the same as this, just on different strings:

|-------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|
|---------5-7/5---------------|
|----5/7----------------------|


You can try playing it this way.

I always play anything similar to the first tab by playing the open string, hammering on to the 1st fret then slide to the 2nd fret. So this is more like what I'd be playing:

|-------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|
|--------------0-2s1p0-------|
|----0h1s2--------------------|
|-------------------------------|


I probably won't focus on actually articulating the pull-off. It'd be more like, I'd just slide up and let go, so the open D string rings out.
