So I've started getting into using slide in some of my songs, but it's always just for small parts of the song, and I'm not really sure what to do with it for the rest of the time. I've got one strap with a makeshift slide-holder, but the strap on my Junior is about a 1/4 inch of leather, so that's not gonna happen. Anybody got some creative ways to store a slide??

That doesn't really work for quick transitions when you're wearing skinny jeans, haha.

In your mouth, unless you're the singer.

On top of your amp, walk over and get it when you need it.

In your pocket (that would be the most obvious).

On your finger, unless you really need your pinky for the parts of the song without the slide.

Balance it on one of the machine heads (not really).

Balance it on your nose.

I usually store it sticking at the top of my pocket, sticking out a little bit. or just on top of my amp and then I walk back and get it when needed.


EDIT: this works well with tighter pants.

EDITEDIT: maybe try your belt loop?

Don't put it in your mouth. It causes the saliva glands to work overtime and where does all the spit go? Straight down the inside of the slide and streams down onto your feet (or even worse, your pedalboard or guitar) - NOT a good look.

Haha, I sing anyway, so no mouth. Another concern with the pants: I tend to thrash around on stage, and even if I am using homemade slides...I still don't like the idea of breaking one. Specially in my pocket..

Get a metal slide, that wont brake, though they don't sound as good as glass in my opinion.
Put in in your pocket half sticking out like whatadrag said.

Or give up singing and put it in your mouth.

Switch to steel or copper maybe?

Or a beer bottle, that's a good trick.

stick a tampon on one of the opening ends of the slide.

when you're not playing, bite the tampon instead of the slide. it will absorb all the saliva.

Fantastic idea.

Tell the bassist to hold it?

Hahahahah, you win.

But I mean, smashing 'em might just be the best/most badass way to go about it. I did make 5 of them tonight alone, sooo not like it'd be that much of a loss.

EDIT: And the guy in that video is so goofy, made my night. The voice, the strange guitar strap/body cover, the beard. Just awesome.

^ I want one of those, seriously.

The websites all American and stuff though, it says 6-8 weeks delivery, so to get to England it'll probably take 4 years.

Plus, I have sausage fingers.

Clip it underneath the mic on the mic stand. You're the singer so it'll be there anyway, I do this with picks and slides.

EDIT Dammit the crab man doctor beat me.

put 1 or 2 sports style wrist sweatbands around your strap, a little bit of tape on the bottom, instant strap pocket!
