Taken for Macro Mondays theme "The Blues", this is a glass guitar slide, shown sitting on the neck of an electric guitar (this orientation was required because it would not otherwise stay there). There are many types of blues (musically), and slide guitar is used in some of them. Ry Cooder is probably the most well known slide guitarist – these videos show some of his slide work: www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgA4PToeNL0 and www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4KmbUCwkyE.
This slide is only about 1" in diameter – the whole width of the image is just under 2 inches.
Note: this is something I’ve never gotten the hang of – it’s harder than it looks.
