I was at my local music store today to get spare strings for my electric guitar when i saw the slides. I thought they were interesting and would be something useful to have in my puny guitar arsenal. But there's a roblem... I don't know the uses of slides... I play both electric and acoustic guitar.
My whole post summarized:
What are the uses of a brass slide when playing both electric and acoustic guitar?

Different tones and technique. It opens up quite a few things. Listen to guys like Derek Trucks and Eric Sardinas for an idea.

Rhodes Gemini
Fryette Ultra Lead
Peavey 6505
THD Flexi 50

Gibson R0 Prototype
EBMM JP13 Rosewood
Fender CS Mary Kaye

Exactly what the name implies, it's used to slide up and down strings smoothly, and slide between frets really quickly without getting the finger scraping. It's a very useful tool for playing country, just think of the steel guitar in country music, that's the closest thing I can compare a slide to for guitar.
