    it means slide from anywhere to 7th fret. You can slide from anywhere but it has to end on the 7th fret. That's all.

    yup thats right^^

    its generally a quick slide over quite a few frets - it wont matter mcuh whe3rer u start from but it does matter whether u start from a higer or lower fret - some1 pls. confirm this and explain it - i ahve to go now - ill psot later if no oen else does..

    but it does matter whether u slide from above into the note or in if u slide from lower frets ( 1-2-3 etc) into 7 or from higher frets ( 19-20-22 etc) ususally in most cases its from higher
    just try both and see what sounds better........

    shak Harrr!

    of course it matters .. but generally a 4 to 5 fret slide is enuff ... otherwise .. the frets are generally mentioned like in hotel california .. it is "slide from 3rd (or 2nd) fret to 10th" for the solo ...
    it matters cuz if you slide from a greater distance it takes time!!! this can mess up all your solo ...
    i say just go on with the flow ... keep the solo on time ..and let your fingers do the decisions for you ..

    It cant be bends, no required pitch indicated. So, I think it is pull-off. I'm not sure.

    ive never seen ^ being sued for pull offs -

    it mghit even be vibrato (though thats normally ~) or maybe even wide vibrato which is a wider and slower vibrato - seriosuly - id still suggest u send an email to the author of the tab - they reusually helpful and clarify doubts fast.

    another simple suggestion: hear the song, try out some bends, some pulloffs, some downstrokes and some vibratos and see whihc sounds closest to the sound ur hearing - thats wat it most probably is...
