there is more than just glass and metal slides too, and they also come in tons of shapes. slide is pretty hard too, it is not just a casual thing that you can kinda pick up and use like you use pinch hamonics or bending. playing slide will be a definite exercise in a new skill set.

ebow = electronic bow, sustains notes indefinitely. i remember back in '96 i wanted one of these and didn't know what it was either. they must have good marketing or something

I believe metal slides sound harsher than a glass slide. ^Listen to what gumblicious says playing slide is not easy.

You'll find whisky very different, but try it and you'll grow into it, soon you and whisky are one, but still two, lovers dancing across a frozen lake under moonlight, wrapped in honey and warmth.


Sums up whisky perfectly

I use a metal slide not for tone but because they're more resistant. I'm a pretty agressive player and once I broke a glass slide while playing. Luckily, I wasn't hurt.

A glass slide will give you a warmer sound and is probably harder to play on an acoustic guitar.

Either way, you do need to practice a lot to learn how to play it decently and you need a good guitar and amp, otherwise, you'll just get a bunch of noise.
