What Kinda Slide??

A discussion of techniques, and equipment for guitar. Fretted, bottleneck or slide, acoustic or electric, this is the place.

Oh, a punt gun.

Illegal to hunt with, not AFAIK illegal to own. Except maybe in insane places like California. Probably a valuable collectors' item. Their heyday was in the 19th century.

A 10 gauge barrel section would be great for sliding, I'd think.

Just the two favorites for different tones - Craftsman 9/16" socket wrench & my trusty olive oil bottleneck (...although i tend to drift towards a Mateus Rosé double-cut just lately :)).

Happy Slidin'

You're using a Craftsman 9/16?


That's what I was using before I started using the Ultimates.


It's a good thing there's a Sears in Oakland...

I thought that was a different size...

I'll be in London sometime in July, but that's going to be busy time with the Family.

Hopefully, we'll be in Stafford again before too long.

Hey Jay, it was real good talking with you the other day :D. That link from bluzeluvr is excellent for converting mm to inches - but i can easily convert inches to mm from here if you can give me your specific measurements.

Thanks BOZ - glad they arrived safely brother :)
