When you get a slide, make sure that it fits on your finger. This seems like a big "duh" factor, but I've seen plenty of people with a wrong size slide.

Personally, I prefer metal over glass.

I too prefer metal, and I like the feel of brass but check out what works for you - glass was always too loose feeling for me perfonally.

I play with a glass slide. I think metal slides sound too harsh usually.

I like a bit of brass, I have a glass and a steel slide kicking about though. I'd advise finding one that fits best regardless of the material to begin with and then just expanding your collection from there.

acoustic-brass
electric-glass


That's how I and many other slide players go about it

just make sure to try all different materials and find which finger you're most comfortable with it on.
