    well, if you practice a bunch on using your pinky, it should only take a couple of months. Sliding? Depends on what you are using. your main fingers should be able to do it now, but your pinky will be able to a few weeks after you get actually using the pinky down. These are ROUGH estimates, every player develops differently.
