When a slide symbol is like this


3/5

Do you hit it once for the three then once again for the 5?

Usually you pick 3 then slide up to 5 without picking again, but I've heard songs that will also pick the note after the slide. Whatever floats your boat!

Ya exactly like i have played some Metallica songs and the picking was definitly right with the second hit but sounded totally different with out it.

Most of the time, only pick the 1st note.

Sometimes (and of the top of my head I can't remember the notation for it) you pick, slide, pick.

What about songs that say something like 3/ and then no number after it?

Just slide up the neck quickly and take your finger off the string in one movement, so that you don't leave a note ringing out.

^Yeah, just pick the first note, and once you got it, then keep playing whats after it.

Yes, one way is called a glissando slide, the other way is a legato slide.
