Lots of fans want to learn to play like SLASH! How about using a SLASH-related song or two for practice? Some wonderful SLASH fans have come up with the guitar tabs for some SLASH songs. But remember, it isn't just playing the right notes - you've got to have that SLASH feeling and attitude! So be sure to run around while you're playing and jump off some tables - or chandeliers! If you have any SLASH-related tabs to contribute, here's how you should do them so they are easy for others to use and print on the web. Web translation is very particular.
1. Use fixed width fonts NOT proportional. Courier is an excellent fixed width font. Use 10 point, please.
2. It's best to use the Notepad for entering the tabs and save them as a text file (e.g. nightrain.txt).
3. No pictures. No headings. No colors.
4. Include your name or what you want to be called. Include your email address if you want to be contacted directly. And of course, include the song title.
5. Mail the text file as an attachment to your mail message.
6. EXPERIENCED USERS may make the file with Microsoft Word and save it as an html file. You can look at this file with a browser and check that your tabs will appear as you wrote them. Web translation may shift a string note or two, and you can adjust before sending them. Send this html file as an attachment (e.g. nightrain.html).

5 Slash Licks to Connect Scale Patterns
NOTE: This lesson contains affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. This helps cover costs of maintaining this website.
Slash is one of my favorite guitar players and the person who inspired me to pick up the guitar when I was 14 years old. His bluesy hard rock licks accentuated with epic bends have created a rock legend with a style all of his own. So, to massage a line from Dr. Emmett Brown, “If you’re going to connect scale patterns on the guitar, why not do it with some style?”. With that said, here are five Slash licks to connect scale patterns on the guitar.
Lick #1 – Nightrain
The first Slash lick comes from Nightrain. This ascending lick is part of the last guitar solo in the song and comes from the 2nd and 3rd positions of the A natural minor scale. A combination of palm muting and hammer-on/pull-offs help build to the climactic bend at the 13th fret of the 1st string.
You can listen to the lick here: Slash lick #1: Nightrain
Lick #2 – Sweet Child O’ Mine
You couldn’t have a list of Slash licks without including at least one from the iconic song Sweet Child O’ Mine. This lick is the infamous run in the middle of the third solo, climbing up the E harmonic minor scale using positions 4, 5, and 1. He also brings in the ♭7 (15th fret on the 2nd string) from the natural minor scale at the top of the run.

Lick #4 – Estranged
Estranged may just be my favorite Guns N’ Roses song. This fourth Slash lick is from the beginning of the first guitar solo. This solo is played using C major scale patterns, but you’ll notice the incorporation of B♭ (6th fret of 1st string) when playing over top of an F major chord.
This part of the solo has a nice little groove as it ascends up the fretboard.

Lick #4 – Paradise City
The fourth Slash lick comes from Paradise City and is part of the first guitar solo. This style of lick is fairly common for connecting the 1st/5th positions of the minor pentatonic scales. This particular lick uses the A minor blues scale and is very similar to a lick you see by David Gilmour in the second solo of Comfortably Numb.
Listen to the lick: Slash lick #4: Paradise City
Lick #5 – November Rain
The last lick comes from the second solo in November Rain. This lick uses positions 3 and 4 of the C major scale. Of the five Slash licks included in this lesson, this one is a particular favorite due to its simplicity in note selection. It’s a great example of what can be accomplished with so few notes just by incorporating a couple of bends and pull-offs.
Listen to the lick: Slash lick #5: November Rain
So there you have it. Five stylish Slash licks that show you how to connect scale patterns on guitar. What are some of your favorite licks that connect scale patterns?

You may have seen the “/” in a guitar tab, and you may have even heard that it is a slide–but what does that mean?
The “/” in a guitar or ukulele tab signifies the player to transition between notes continuously without releasing pressure off of the guitar/ukulele string, creating a smooth glissando effect.
That sounds cool, but what does it look like and sound like? Let’s take a look.
Furthermore, these slashes (“/”) in guitar music can mean many different things! I’ll seek to clear up all of this so you’ll know what they all mean.
The Explanation Of The / Symbol in Guitar Tabs
Perhaps you’re playing a Jack Johnson tab and you see a / symbol. At first you might think somebody fell asleep at the keyboard, but it turns out this symbol is describing an incredibly essential skill for guitar playing. “The Slide”.
In music terms, this is called a glissando, where you transition from one note to another without a break. If you see a glissando in a guitar tab, you should be proud, and you should rub it in your piano playing friends’ faces, because piano can’t make glissandos!
I’m going to show an example tab, and then I’m going to give a step by step picture explanation of what’s going on so you can see what to do. I’ll also throw in a sound bite so you can know exactly what this technique is for.
So, let’s talk about a transition from the 5th fret on the lowest note (A) to the note two frets up (B), the tab that you might see could look like this:
Or, if you’re on Ultimate Guitar Tabs, you’ll likely see something like this:
In the next section I’ll show you how to do this:
How To Do a Slide on the Guitar (Glissando)
I’m going to be doing the glissando that is shown in the example tabs in the previous section.
- Place your middle finger on the 5th fret of the bottom string of the guitar (A)
2. Pluck the note with the string pushed down on the 5th fret
3. While still pressing down the string, move your middle finger to the 7th fret
You have successfully done a glissando!
Here’s an animated gif just to make sure it’s all sunk in:
Finally, if you’d like to hear what this sounds like, you can hear it here:
What About the “\” Symbol?
As you might have guessed by now, this is also a glissando, but in the opposite direction. This is an example tab of what that would look like:
The exact same process applies, you just apply pressure as you move your finger down the fretboard while the string is plucked so you get a nice smooth sound.
What About Slash Chords?
It is kind of confusing because in a guitar tab there are only a limited number of symbols available, and the same symbol “/” is used multiple times. Perhaps you came here to learn about slash chords, which uses the “/” symbol, but for a purpose that is completely different.
A slash chord is notated like this: “C/G”.
The note on the left is the primary chord being played, and the note on the right of the slash is the bass note.
What does that mean? Well, for example, if you were to play C/G, you would play the normal C shape, and then adjust your ring and pinky finger to play the note right above the top note of the normal chord (which is G). The G is being used as a bass note to support the C chord.
Here’s a tab of that chord to be ultra clear:
This makes a rich sounding C chord that has extra emphasis on the 5th note of the C major scale. Cool right?
What About Slash Notation for Measures?
There is one more slash that I’ll talk about here. You may already know about slash chords and slides, but what about slash notation?
Here’s an example of what I’m talking about there:
This symbol means simply that there is no specific rhythm intended for the player, only that whatever notes they play, they can safely use the notes in the chords listed above the staff and it will fit with the rest of the music.
This is often used for rhythm sections (like guitar or piano) where the composer doesn’t really care about what rhythms the rhythms section creates together as long as they are working well, together and keep the tempo, properly.
Lastly, this kind of notation is used for a soloist where the notes and rhythm are not dictated by the music but instead is left to the player to improvise!
This type of playing takes a lot of practice but is super fun. So, next time you see these slashes, you won’t have to panic.
