    Hi ! i know it - slurs means slides from one note to another, i use to call it with the same name, earlier before seeing the word slide. So its nothing different but slide. ;)

    Slurs include all of the following -

    Hammer-ons
    Pull-offs
    Slides
    Bends

    You will note they are all fretting hand techniques. From a purist point of view slurs only include hammers-ons and pull-offs. In fact many don't include bends and slides under slurs. Guitarists use slurs to add rhythmic, melodic and harmonic interest to basic guitar playing.

    Also, you should not substitute the word 'slides' for 'slurs'. It would lead to confusion if you play in a band of experienced guitarists.
