English term or phrase: spill-down
You could use a bend up on the tenth fret.

Bend up...
hold your top note, and then release it.

And then do a spill-down.
That can continue down
into a more complex lick like this.

Spanish translation:glissando
Explanation:
Probably the Spanish translation would include an Italian word, used in music to signify a sound being "spilled-down" or extended by sliding the finger on the fret down - towards the first fret, after the finger on the string has pulsed the note.

It could be the translation.
