TS dont listen to this kid, hes a complete troll

what you are reffering to is a 'chazzwozzer'


i lied, its a slide, often used with open tunings because you cant really fret two notes which are far apart
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

Its a slide - but I find that a good old lighter works just as well

i once dreamt my wallet was on a helicopter and i chased after it. and eventually i pulled my dick out and lassoed the bottom of the copter and pulled it out of the sky. i woke up screaming

theres glass (often a bottleneck) which tends to be warmer sounding

or theres steel, which is harsher. i prefer steel, only cuz i have one which fits prefect.

personal choice really. see if you can try a few on, remember, you have to be pretty accurate, because you dont use the frets with a slide, you just press gently on top of the strings. so get a snug one which you can control

Though "Rag Doll" by Aerosmith has a slide guitar part in standard tuning....

But yeah, slide guitar is fun. I can make really high noises beyond the 24th fret, drives the dog crazy
