Hello everyone I will get right into it-I am a slide player, and I have been wanting to try out mixing some lap steel style sounds and also some indian scales to my slide playing. Is there a good way to do this? I have managed to learn a couple indian type scales(though I am not one to practice scales nonstop like some people) and I can 'sort of' solo using them after learning them yesterday. I know this is kind of a broad question so thanks for all help

P.S. I am going for kind of a smoother sound with my slide(not all the time though)-much like george harrison and derek trucks. Also I am NOT getting a lap steel-I have a few reasons, partly just cause I like having the guitar the way I do now and also cause I am a lefty-among other reasons.
Thanks for any and all help
