    For heavy and good pick slides use Dunlop Ultex.

    I once read Tom Morello used an allen wrench on People of the Sun. That would qualify as short pick slides.

    Always loved that tone. According to Steve Jones, it was not a Marshall but a Silverface Fender Twin loaded with Gauss speakers run wide open. I have a hard time believing he didn't use some sort of pedal with it. I've cranked many a silverface and have never been able to get that sound.

    I love Ed's but they are not hard to cop.
    Scholz, on the other hand, is virtually impossible to emulate.
    Randy Rhoads when he comes in on Crazy Train is still goosebumps.
    Honorable mention to Lifeson for little short ones as part of phrases-The solo in "A Farewell To Kings" and the middle break in "Hemispheres" are great examples.

    Stranglehold was the first thing that came to my mind, but the mention of Boston and EVH make it a tough call. All are great.

    With regards to Gibbons and Gimme all Your Lovin', I never thought (and still don't) that was a pick slide. I think that is a quick slide down with the fret hand. SRV did it a lot. EVH does it at the end of the solo oon "Beat It". I could be wrong, but I don't think that is a pick slide.

    I think Highway To Hell is my favorite. It's that stop they do.
