Strange as it may seem, when the first bluesmen experimented with playing slide on their guitars back in the twenties, they didn't use bottlenecks! The first slide guitar players utilized a knife, usually a pocketknife, or a straight razor--held between the ring finger and the pinky of the left hand. Held like this, it was possible to barre straight across the strings or play individual notes on different strings and then swing the knife--or razor--out of the way when it was not needed.

It sounded great, but it was clumsy--and painful! Soon bluesmen switched to a slide fashioned from a medicine bottle or made from the neck of a wine bottle. This worked better, it wasn't so uncomfortable, but it was just as clumsy--and the slide had a tendency to lay diagonally across the strings. Still, it was the only solution, so players used it.

NOW there is THE EDGE Slide from John Pearse. Going back to the idea of the straight razor, John created a slide that was sculpted in such a way that it would fit effortlessly between the ring finger and the pinky. He designed so carefully that it has a counterbalance that allows it to be swung out of the way when it is not needed. Finally, he cast it from dense bell brass to give it incredible sustain. The EDGE is unique. The EDGE is beautiful! The EDGE is where it all began. Finally the wheel has turned full circle. Have YOU got The EDGE?

John Pearse The Edge Brass Guitar Slide

The edge guitar slide is a very good slide.

John Pearse The Edge Brass Guitar Slide

It feels like a quality product, but it wasn't any use to me as I suffer from dystonia and found it very tricky to manipulate across the guitar fretboard. I'll be returning it - but if you have normal digital motor function it should be a breeze to use.
