Today a user posted How should I do slides on guitar without hurting my fingers? and tagged it with slide-guitar. That tag was later removed, because the question seems to be about legato sliding with the fingers as opposed to using a slide.
On the other hand, I mistakenly re-tagged How to practice legato slide on the guitar? What constitutes proper technique? with slide-guitar (now fixed).
There are a fair number of questions regarding guitar sliding, some about "slide guitar" and some about "legato", but which are difficult to distinguish for a guitar ignoramus (points to self) or, perhaps, a guitar beginner.
From my perspective, there would be real value in adding a new guitar-legato (or some such) to make the distinction explicit. But what does the non-ignoramus community think? Is it always clear from context, even to a beginner? Or does the differentiation have value, if only to make searches more direct?
