Now you gotta play that slide-geetar and suck on that harp at the same time. Lets’ hear a little blues… :blue_heart::blue_heart::cold_face::cold_face:

That’s good. But the harmonica isn’t a good slide. The story with Duane Allman was he was sick and in a fight with his brother. Greg Allman dropped off some cold pills and a Taj Mahal album. Well, you can read about it here yourself. https://www.duaneallman.info/note54.htm

Thanks! I know it’s not a good slide, but it’s all I have

Brass bar, copper pipe or neck of a glass bottle make a fairly good substitute. With the glass bottle neck be sure to wear off all sharp edges, you can do this with a flat stone, sand and water as lubricant.

I could do that, but two people on another forum are both sending me a real slide bar soon, so I’m gonna wait

Sounds good. I was just pointing out that you might have a small jar lying around the house that contains something like Italian seasoning, chili powder, etc. I’d probably not pour out someone’s pill bottle.
