I'm learning a song, Limelight, from a magazine tab and ot calls for me to slide from fret 2 on the 3rd string to fret 4 on the 2nd string, how is this supposed to be done?

P.S. I posted this in the bass forums because i thought it was more of a question of technique than the actual tab.

Slide from fret 2 to fret 7 on the same 3rd string i think.


I thought of that, but why would the tab not just say that?

you gotta a couple of choices, you could hit the 2nd fret and slide up the 3rd string and then hit the 4th fret of the next string. or you could hit the 2nd fret, slide up the the 2nd string and hit the 4th fret. or hit the 2nd fret and slide up that string to the 9th fret of the same string cause its the same note as the 4th fret of the 2nd string.

Who knows. But i think that's the way you do it.

You could hit both notes on the same string, or you could slide up and then hit the other note - this would be more of a funk sound, though.

Learning the notes the strings natively produce help get the point across.

4-G
3-D
2-A
1-E

I think that's what you're saying.
