    I slide is something you wear on your finger(usually the index, I think) which gives you a nice watery sliding effect.

    its usually of steel or glass...
    wear it on the pinky..u'll find it better as u have more options open to use the other three fingers.

    The regular /\ slide is whaty you do with fingers.. Slide is used t ocreate a continuous pitch increasing of decreasing sound withour having and rough rides or bumps..

    thnx for the pic dhim !!!

    does it more often used with electric guitar ?? or people do use it with acoustic , and does it put any extra effect - when used with electric ??

    Not necessarily.. I use Glass on Acoustic to avoid Metal - Metal contact which will throw the Song away.. glass with be more smooth..

    It does have a diffferent if not extra effect when used with Distortion on Electric guitars.,.
