If you like chrome slides, this obviously isn't a slide for you. It's the only slide I've ever owned, dub it fits me well. I can use it on any finger, I mean, some fingers are more comfortable than others, but it'll fit any one. (just be careful it doesn't slide off if you have it on your pinky) It's great for playing live, but I've never recorded it. I'm most certainly not a slide player, but i do enjoy a good jam in open d, or open g. Particular songs where this slide can shine is "I Need To Be Your Only" by The Strypes. Their guitarist uses a chrome slide. But (again), I'm not a slide player- -I notice no difference. Overall I think it is fantastic. But depending on your finger size and what tones you want to get, or what style of guitars you play you may or may not want a different one. Anyways.. works good for me!
