    Ask and ye shall receive! Thanks @davetcan.

    Also, I checked and it is the David Hamburger electric guitar slide book that I have two copies of. Not sure how that happened, but I definitely have two.

    I think I’m gonna get the Dunlop Johnny Winter slide since I have resonator on the way.

    I did recognize on @Mooh's pic quite as much slides as I tried for different sounds and feel.

    I used them on my pinky and became quite at ease even with the heaviest taper brass one.

    The thing I would add to this trend is I did apply regular Band Aid plasters inside most of them
    to avoid slipping and get better adjustment. ;-)

    One of those slides, the one cut from a Sleeman beer bottle, has Velcro tape (the loop side) on the inside to make it less sloppy. It was all I had handy at the time and has lasted over 25 years.

    I was watching this video and noticed something weird: the one guitar player uses a slide on his ring finger when playing acoustic, but on his pinky when playing electric. Interesting.

    Also, pretty cool little acoustic slide & pedal steel "duet" solo at 2:45.

    I picked up that Gibson SG Special last night. It is going to be great for learning slide. Unfortunately, my noodling last night sounded like a cat being humped by a porcupine.
