When two notes are tied together, the second one is not picked, which I understand when they're on the same string, but what happens when they aren't?
If I'm going from an F to a G or a D to a E, how do I get the sound from the second note that's now on a separate string?

If you're playing electric with a lot of gain or sustain you can hammer on the note otherwise try to find a way to hammer-on or pull-off the note in a different position of the neck. If all else fails, pick the note that's on a different string. Some music is written without consideration for the guitar's limitions. Hopefully this helps answer your question. Take care.

How do you know it is on a different string? Technically it couldn't be played on a different [as written as a tied note] without picking it (unless, as noted above, you hammered it on a highly overdriven instrument)
On guitar, going one step up on a 'tied' note usually means a hammer on, a slide or a bend on the same string.
