View Full Version : Slide guitar question/comment

10-27-2008, 05:23 PM
Recently I cut the tip of my ring finger of my fretting hand. It took about a week to heel up so during that period I spent some time trying to focus on slide guitar. I sort of went off the deep end and purchased a bunch of different slides.

I got a Hoolahan slide that flips back so you can keep it on your finger and have full mobility by rotating the slide. I got a Jet slide (www.jetslide.com) and also a bird of paradise slide, which are both like a ring with a slide on it allowing you to flip it back and use all your fingers.

Just wondering if anyone has a preference to slides, or any comments about unconventional slides other than the typical metal tube over the finger.
