Tying in with me rebirth as a predominantly Slide Player for now, I thought I'd revisit something that was lost when we switched the forum over.
Slides and various types thereof.
I have a few slides of varying sizes and materials, Ceramic, Brass, Chrome, Glass, Pyrex, you name it, some I favour over others, but each tends to bring something different to the table, so they all have a place.
For now, I am using a comparatively heavy (Thick Walled) Glass Slide that is slightly shorter than those which I used before, reaching across 5 Strings as opposed to the more usual 6. I got into this size quite a while ago when I used a somewhat unique slide that was marketed by Kirk Lorange, Aussie Slide Meister and well worth checking out. Anyway, the only problem that I had with that was that it is a very heavy old bugger and more than I can cope with until I get my chops back up to speed again. It also has to be said, I am preferring the sound of the Glass slide over Brass at this time, this will undoubtedly change, it always does.
I know a few of you dabble at Slide and there are a few Slide Demons on here too, so what floats your particular boats and more importantly, why?
