About Guitar Slides

Guitar slides are an indispensable tool to have in the guitarist's armoury whether you have an electric, acoustic or resonator guitar. Stories abound over who invented the guitar slide ring and slide playing, and it may have been invented independently more than once! What's definite though is that the slide guitar is one of the characteristic sounds to several styles of music including Mississippi Delta Blues, Country and Hawaiian music. Some of the most lauded players of all time include Blues guitarists like Elmore James and Muddy Waters, southern rock icons Duane Allman and Derek Trucks, not to mention eclectic rock legend Ry Cooder.

Why Should I Choose a Guitar Slide?

  • Nothing else captures that sound of a glass, metal or ceramic slide gliding across the strings
  • A quality, well fitting guitar slide ensures you can play exactly how you want
  • Guitar slide can be an indispensable addition to any guitarist's armoury

Frequently Asked Questions about Guitar Slides

Question: Do the different slide materials affect the sound?
Yes. Metal slides tend to sound sharper and have more treble content in the sound than glass slides. Glass has a slightly softer and rounder sound. Lots of slide players keep a collection of different slides handy to suit different songs.
Question: What is a Blues Bottle?
A Blues Bottle is a type of glass slide modelled after an old-style medicine bottle. Players such as Duane Allman used to use a medicine bottle in place of a purpose-built slide. Since he is renowned as one of the world's greatest players of slide guitar, others have sought to emulate his practice ever since. This means using a medicine bottle in place of a slide, too! Dunlop design these Blues Bottles to be as historically accurate as possible.
Question: What are guitar slides?
In simple terms, guitar slide rings are a solid material object you touch against the strings to define the notes, instead of pushing down at the frets. The result is a very specific sound, especially when sliding between notes, that's especially popular in a host of styles including Blues, Country, and Hawaiian music.
Question: Are guitar slides any good?
Absolutely! When you need that gorgeous sound of sliding between notes and chords on your guitar, you need a slide. Nothing compares and nothing else sounds like it! A well fitting, quality guitar slide lets you play these styles as comfortably and effectively as possible.
