When you hear people use the term "slash chords" they are not referring to the guitar player, they're referring to the particular notation of this next type of chords.

The basic concept here is that you play your chord like normally, but use a different bass note. That particular bass note is notated after a slash, and that's where the name comes from. In this lesson I'll show you how that works in a rock context!
