I found this gem at Old Man. I told myself that for 2015, I will study Blues guitar. It seemed like the universe was with me when I found this broken bottle top. With a few modifications it can be used as a guitar slide.
I brought the thing home all excited, but maybe a little too excited. I took the aluminum lip and some plastic off the top and brought out my grinder. I was too in a hurry, and I cracked what the universe has given me so serendipitously. I was so bummed.
Bye bye bottleneck slide! A few days later, I researched some DIY online so I can practice on a wine bottle I already had. It wasn't the best choice since it seemed a bit short and had a pronounced line where the halves of the glass were bonded. I wanted to get some practice though before finding a better candidate.
Thank you for talking stories. Happy New Year!
