different slashes mean different direction of slide, you dont have to travel the length possible, just whatever sounds right

EDIT, and if they are between numbers, you slide between those frets, if you dont know what a slide is take it to the begineers forum

just slide the way the slash is pointing.
also it would help if you just experimented with it while listening to the song, ya know, trying to figure it out. you should be able to figure it out, just listen to the song.

EDIT: wait, do you mean something like this:
|--7/--|
|--5\--|
|--7/--|

So is it like

e|--------|
B|--------|
G|---7\---|
D|---7\---|
A|---5\---|
E|--------|


If that's the case, hit the powerchord, and then slide down in the direction of the first fret at whatever speed and length you feel sounds most accurate.
D:
Signature.

That would just mean slide from 7 to 5 and then back to 7.
If it's like TheBax has posted I have no clue.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

How to you slide up to 5 from 7?

It doesn't matter what direction the slashes are drawn in, just follow the numbers and it's kind of obvious what way you have to slide.
