According to this tutorial (see link below), the forward slash represents an upward slide. I'm familiar with note slides, but not at all sure how sliding from a C to a G chord would be done, as they aren't shaped anything like each other, but I'm sure I'm letting my utter newbness peek through now.


Beyond that, can't say I can help much...haven't learned to read tabs myself.

I thought of that ... but ... these are actually chords ... and not notes.
First thing: I'm not sure what they're meant to mean in that version of the tab, it seems whoever wrote it just put them there because he couldn't figure out the chords!!

Try using this version instead:

You'll see that in the place where the tab you were looking at said "C / / G", this one says "F C Dm C".

For the record, you will quite often see chords using a slash like this: "D/F#". That indicates a chord with a different bass note, so it changes a standard D chord from xx0232 to 2x0232.
