When you see the "/9" that means to slide up to the fret. Slide into the note.When you see the "9\" that means to slide down. Slide down after note is played.I guess it can be typed different ways. This is how I interpret it.But I always look at the direction of the slide and where the slide is in relation to the number. If it is before number, I assume that it means to slide up to. However, when I see a slide after the number, I assume I need to slide down from the note. --------------------

Try and make the pick and slide simultaneous in case the start note is outside of the key, you don't necessarily want to draw attention to where it starts, just where it ends --------------------
