is this sliding between the frets?

E---------------------------I
B---------------------------I
G---------------------------I REPEAT
D-2--x--2^3--2-0------------I
A-2--x--2^3--2-0------------I
D-2--x--2^2--2-0------------I

E----------------------------------I
B----------------------------------I
G----------------------------------I
D--2^2----2^2----------------------I
A--2^2----2^2----------------------I
D--2-2----2-2----------------------I

notice the first one goes from a 2-2-2 to a 3-3-2

It could be a slide, but that notation usually indeed means a bend. However, both slides and bends make no sense, since it also says 2^2, which makes no sense in either case. Rather weird tab if you ask me...

The second measure might be bend and release?

It maybe the person whom tab'ed its way of writing a vibrato or tremolo. Where you would pick the chord and kind-of shake the your hand quickly causing the notes to change in pitch ever so lightly.

just my thought.

Looks like exponentiation to me. 2^2 must be shorthand for 4. That's the only explanation that makes sense.

yeah ^ means bend genreally. / means to slide... its a very strange tab, but maybe 2 ^2 IS meant to mean bend up and bring back down..

its a very badly written tab, is there a key?

my guess is that its a slight bend, like a quarter step

yeah, thanks everybody, i believe it like what Joe and snoogans has said, a slight bend it just threw me off seeing the way it was written. I guess the person wanted ou to do a slight bend and didn't know how to just say that. lol anyway, thanks for all your help. i really appreaciate it so much! 8)
