I want to learn slide, but I don't know if I should get metal or glass. I know that it all comes down to what you prefer, but I'm wondering if a certain one works better on a Strat? I know people usually play slide on Les Pauls and stuff, so I was just curious as to which works better on a strat. Thanks for any help

What kind of tone are you looking for?
And what kind of pickups does your strat have?

Sorry - should have included that in the OP. My Strat has Texas Specials. And I have 10's in standard tuning, if that makes a difference. I'm looking for a tone similar to Warren Haynes in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-Xc8AKQv5Y towards the end when he starts jamming at around 6:05.

I prefer glass. If you're really resourceful, it's easy to make one from the neck of a beer or wine bottle.

I was thinking of doing that for fun, but I found a gift card that I forgot I had from a family member for $20 at my local music store so I figured I might as well use it on something before it expires

I suggest a a capo as well if you don't have one. Not need for slide guitar, but still good to have.

Actually if your using a slide tuning (open G, open A, etc.) then a capo is good to play in different keys without changing the tuning. Capo on the 2nd fret of open G= open A.

Glass is easier to slide and is more of a smooth sound. Metal will be more...idk exactly how to explain...like rough sounding haha.

If you have a shot glass, try using that and see if you like the sound.

I just went to a hardware store and picked up some copper tubing for 99 cents...I'm using that atm
