Chromed steel slides are lightweight and perfect for creating thecutting brightmetallic tones preferred by electric guitarists. While sliding, they produce percussive sounds and overtones on the strings that add a desirable ambience to slide playing. Chromed steel slides are most popular for rock, metal and blues styles on electric guitar. Acoustic guitarists also favour them to add unmistakable slide ambience to their tone.
When playing slide guitar, the string is not pushed down on the fret. The slide lightly pushes the string directly over the desired guitar fret (as opposed to playing next to the fret with your finger).
Which finger??- You first need to decide which finger will hold the slide. Choose from the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th finger. The decision will be based on two factors: which finger feels most comfortable and the need to use the other free fingers for fretting notes.
2nd finger muting- Most of the time the 2nd finger should lay flat behind the slide. This will provide muting of unwanted guitar strings.
