Alright, I just watched a performance by the Derek Trucks band, and I'm impressed. It's imprinted three things on me though;

1. I need a guitar to leave in G.
2. I need to learn to do more with slide than a weird little birdlike sound I figured out and the slide lead on the first half of Free Bird.
3. Danelectros aren't that bad for twang/slide.

Going into the last one, there are a few Danelectro U2 reissues on the local Craigslist. Can I get some opinions on one as a slide/G-tuning/twang(until I get a tele) guitar?

If you aren't going to contribute, please don't post. I know I suck with slide. That's because I've never used one that much and just got it on a whim because I had a coupon to get one free item under $5 with the purchase of $25 of strings a couple months ago.

XD I suppose you're right there. Still, I'd love to be able to play entire songs in G with a slide on top of the noises rather than just a few noises.
