Slide turned up today so I thought I'd give it a go.

It's running through my practice amp.

First time I've used a slide before so please forgive any mistakes and harsh noises you may experience :D

Yep, Holly.  Sounds fantastic.  My usual (hard learned) slide tips are, good body posture and guitar posture too 1 guitar not leaned back to you.  Drag the index finger over the strings behind the slide to cut down extraneous noise.  Keep the slide moving for more feeling and human voice character- don't hold it right over the chord - waver it up and down a bit.  And always eat frosted flakes for breakfast.
