What are guitarists doing when they slide their hand up and down the fingerboard real fast as they play..for example when they are playing something like a blues lick--or is it a riff??? Dunno the diff..hey I'm a totally newbie!


Ok thought so but not sure....very faint if any sound at all..

A lot of times, I just don't hear the slide tone.


Sometimes (most of the time it's just for show). Too look cool and also keep on rhythm.
