    Does such a thing exist? Think of it.. you play one pitch..then when you play a higher pitch and instead of hearing the 2nd note, the pedal would make it sound like the first note is sliding into the 2nd, creating a slide guitar sound

    Certain delays will do this sort of. I think the Rebote/Echobase etc. if you turn the mix past unity and the time all the way down. I have one that gets sort of close. It doesn't sound particularly good, though.

    You're basically talking about a very complicated effect that involves fast pitch tracking but also needs to be delayed so that it knows where your next note is before it slides up.

    Otherwise: Digitech Wammy.

    The Electro Harmonix HOG can do something like this with it's Freeze Gliss mode.

    Yeah, I do understand and sorry to sound like a smart a$$. Slide is so filled with nuances, that I have a hard time imagining a pedal really doing it justice. But a very cool idea.

    If the only reason is because it's too hard to put on and take off a slide, you could try something like the above, or do what Joe Bonamassa did. His tech velcroed a magnet to the back of the headstock on his guitar. Using a metal slide, he can get it on and off VERY quickly.

    Keep the slide on your middle finger. Use your other fingers to play power chords or whatever...

    Whammy bar - works great for Jeff Beck (who also plays really good slide).

    hoolahan slide from dunlop, once you get the hang of it. It works really well.

    no disrespect to the OP but, I hope nobody starts a thread asking about a pedal that plays the guitar for you LOL

    Agreed. People find a way everyday to make this work. It's easy to get in the mindset of having pedals solve our playing issues but this USA case of play more, stomp less.
