1place side of pic on strings, slide down/up the neck without raising the pick at all
2thick strings are the best, the E and A and D string are best to slide on
3alternate techniques.....you could scrape something eklse other than a pick (ie, an unscrewed whammy bar sounds really cool when scraped against strings

I find it best if you scrape the side of the pick on the E A and D strings, without applying pressure to the strings, so it doesn't get that sliding down the frets with a horrible scraping noise sound.

Do it on all three of the strings at the same time, for a fuller sound, and use the side of your pick.

It can be done on the unwound strings, too...just takes a little more finesse and I think sounds better than the scraping of the wound strings.
