Mississippi Fred McDowell - John Henry

McDowell first played slide guitar with a pocket knife, then used a beef rib bone, before he started using a glass slide.

How can you beat that?

Well Zach

Jimmy Hendrix did play with his teeth! But I guess he picked with his teeth, rather than fretting. I suppose you could use your teeth as a slide, but they probably wouldn't be around for the next song!

3 out of 4 dentists would give you a root-canal for merely suggesting the idea.
