Use your index finger to barre the slide at the beginning of measure six, as well as the seventh fret right after that. In measure eight we have a motif which gets repeated later, and will require some practice to sound smooth. Again, focus on keeping the bass line very legato. If you fret the C# in the bass with your ring finger, the C natural with your middle, and the B with your index, you should find the other fingerings just fall into place. Barre the second fret on beat four of measure eight for the double pull-offs. That is the really hard part.
