* In most of times it is preferable to play this interval with ring finger's jump. But this is also possible with a jump between ring and pinky fingers. Below 7th fret, hand cannot easily stretch between these two fingers while maintaining perfect fingering.      
tip: Never convert a normal fingering to a slide for the sake of convenience in fingerings. The second note on slide has always a lower accent; but you may not always intend it! Play what you really intend!
