Grimshaw #5 says "the finger should retain its pressure against the fretboard so as to produce a singing effect". So sliding on the bass string specifically. I came up with my own ditty trying to work that in.

The Indiana jones theme played first in the lowest octave, then up an octave, then the tracks merged and both octaves synched to play the same time. Played on helix zephyr with chris sands medium nylon strings.
