    On the hand that's on the neck of your guitar, one finger has a glass thing that fits over it. What you do is slide it up and down the strings instead of using just the finger itself. I know that's the poorest explanation you'll ever get, but that's just me. Maybe someone else can tell you about it.

    It's what steel guitar players use on their left hand(if they're right-handed)

    The above reply was right concerning the use of a glass or metal cylinder. It yields a brighter, harsher sound, but its main purpose is to eliminate the frets on an instrument. This way, you can swoop, swell, fall and rise steadily, WITHOUT all those half step intervals. It's like a fretless bass or a violin-YOU have to handle the intonation, as there are no frets to stop the string. For a VH example or 2, listen to 'Could This Be Magic' (WACF), 'The Dream Is Over' (F.U.C.K.), or "Ballot or the Bullet" (VH3). Slides are far more prominent in blues and country styles, but have turned up in rock all over the place.

    Ever heard Duane Allman? That's slide guitar. Sonny Landreth does a lot of slide, too. Check these things out--when you hear it, I think you'll know what slide is.

    Eddie and David Gilmour should be the only people on the planet who are allowed use slide!

    Other then them, I fucking hate slide playing. I almost hate it as much as I hate hammet

    And Bonnie Raitt. She's known as The Queen of Slide Guitar. Though she sucks
