Einstein WAS odd. So was Warhol...

At what price genius?

David is right, "we're all just guessing."

Point taken - although I've never been sure that Warhol was a genius...

Okay, good enough. I didn't say that either, and am sure he wasn't. I'm just saying that just because someone does something differently doesn't make it any less valid or good. It's my preference to use picks when I play slide.

I'm not being critical - just curious.

In my own approach to Slide, so much of the game is damping the unwanted sounds, and this is easier if I use fingers or fingerpicks.

Do you mainly play single note lead lines? I have noticed, for example, that Roy Rogers grabs a Flatpick for this sort of thing (he keeps one in a groove dug into the top of his Martin New Yorker - yeesh)

Yessir, that is how I play. Long, drawn out, slow notes.

If it runs by here, I'll catch it and send it home. A bit lighter, of course.

I have a slide book/DVD by a cat name Kirby Kelly that flat picks and uses dampning techniques w/ both hands while picking. He cracks out some wicked lead licks!
I personally use flat picks, fingers or a metal forefinger pick. I can't seem to get along w/ thumb picks tho so my base lines tend to weaken some. Oh well.... it's all good!
