Which type of slide would be better for acoustic guitar?

Ive seen more metal ones for electric, and more glass for acoustic, but I have no idea.
go to the acoustic guitar forum. they'll definitely be able to help you more.

The resonant frequency of the clitoris is too low for the guitar players to take care of.

Just different sounds... Try out a few and decide. Generally the metal ones are more twangy and the glass are a bit more rounded sounding.

Unless its electronic drums.

Metal - probably cheaper anyway. Glass one may break if you dropped it by accident. Never seen anyone use a glass either.
i'd go for glass

i have a metal one that i use for my acoustic, and i get a load of unintended noise but then again i'm not great at slide guitar
Depends...most of the thinner metal ones give too tinny a tone, glass or porcelain will be a lot smoother and fuller. Then again, there are the tone bars used for proper lap steel which ring for days and get a great tone, but you hold them much differently than you would a regular slide.

Generally though, for acoustic, I'd recommend glass.
Make one like all the bluesy folk do!

I think it just involves a bottle, a hacksaw and a file!


Time on earth is like butterscotch; you really want more, even though it will probably just make you ill.

I like glass for electric, and a metal bar (like a pedal steel) for acoustic. Although every good bar guitarist should be able to do some tricks with the neck of a beer bottle too.
