    My slide advice is to mute behind the slide. Also try muting the strings you aren't playing much like a bass player would. A lot of bottleneck players don't mute but if you do your notes will be more defined. see if you can find Kelly Joe Phelps' video from homespun tapes on lap steel. He covers that quite well. Once you mute non muting sounds a bit sloppy and not as sweet. That video improved my slide playing. Great video BTW.

    Very good, where does use of the slide originate from? Such an interesting sound.
