He Said She Said Slide Guitar Special Vol II (11/13/10)

Good evening! Those of you who know me well are aware of what slide guitar does to me. Tonight I’m celebrating not an instrument per se, but a musical accessory, a method of making a most delicious sound by sliding a solid object down  steel strings.  Slides are made from many things. Some people refer to it as bottle neck guitar, from the old habit of using a broken beer bottle as a slide. Modern folks are fond of pretty molded glass slides, I see those often, but many things will work. I have an old photo of a friend of mine, playing her guitar with a plastic vibrating novelty toy. Smokin’

We’ll hear dobro, lap steel, pedal steel, guit-steel and resonator guitars tonight. From sad bastard, cry  in your beer tunes to Bob Log III growling at us through his bubble helmet. I hope you enjoy!
