I recently picked up a guitar that I figured would be good for learning to play with a slide, which I have never done before. I've read a bunch of the tips about guitar setup, string dampening, etc, but the choice of slide seems very subjective and "what works for you". Inspired by @player99 's thread about trying different overdrives for slide, I thought I'd ask what y'all use for the slide itself. I feel like I'm leaning towards a brass slide, for whatever reason. Which probably means I won't put it on my pinky finger because I think it's too weak. I've heard of people using anything from their pinky finger to their middle finger for slide. What do you use? Does anyone ever use their index finger? It seems that conceptually that one would be easy because that's the finger I already use for barre chords, but I don't know of anyone who uses that finger. What kind of slide do you have? Has anyone tried one of those Rock Slides with the little cutaway? Any advantage to a ball-tip slide?
