Teaspoon Bottleneck

Believe it or not, I tried this once in my VERY early days on guitar ... and decided it was not possible or sensible.

Of course, in those days I had neither the right hand nor left, but I had seen a couple of slide guitarists off the US Navy R&R invasion and thought they delivered a tres cool sound.

What I actually tried was: dessert soup, wooden-handled knife; a metal drinking straw-cum-spoon; and a metal-handled chopstick of which I held the wooden business end in my mouth.

This guy has quite a nifty technique and rhythm.
