Slide guitar brings a unique sound to your style of music. Whether you’ve been playing with a slide for years or are looking for a new musical challenge, you’ll be able to produce the exact sound and tone you want with the right metal slide. The construction of the metal slide is pretty bare bones. Typically shaped like a pipe or ring, the slide has a hollow center that allows it to be worn on the middle, ring or pinky finger. Choosing which finger to wear the slide has a direct impact on how it will move across the strings. When worn on the middle finger, the slide can be bigger, heavier and produces a fatter tone. If you go with the ring finger, the size of slide you wear is limited and you’ll only be able to use two fingers to play regularly. As well,, this option gives you more control when it comes to moving the slide up and down the fret. If the pinky is your preferred finger, you have the freedom to use your other three fingers to play while using a smaller, more compact slide. Construction is another aspect to consider when searching out that perfect sounding slide. The most popular make for a slide is steel. It’s said to produce a bright, cutting sound that is a favorite among blues and rock musicians. Bronze follows up as the second most popular among guitarists. It gives off a darker, louder sound than its steel cousin due to a denser, heavier construction. There are many options when it comes to playing the slide guitar. From stainless steel to brass, adding this accessory to your collection will definitely bring a distinct sound to your music. Take some time to research different shapes and sizes to really get a feel on which slide best suits your musical taste.
