Need a Guitar Slide with Mojo? Try the "Blues Bottle"!

If you heard my new single (well why didn't you! See the right panel)... you will hear my slide guitar; played with a Dunlop "blues bottle'.

I don't have it with me as I write this so I used the pictures off the web.

Back in the old pre-Depression days of the Mississippi Delta, bluesmen broke medicine bottles to creat slides for guitar playing, hence the term "bottleneck" guitar.

The Dunlop Blues Bottle is shaped like a bottleneck... hell even the package is super groovy:

So if you are looking for a slide that's also very bluesy in effect and looks, get this one! It's also durable and sounds great on strings to due it's very rigid structure.
