[Harp-L] seeking suggestions for songs with slide guitar

Hello Fellow Chewers of the Tin Sandwich,

Please give me some suggestions for blues or blues-ish songs where there
might be a *backup* part for a slide guitar.

I'm currently playing in a blues/rock band where the leader has kindly
consented to allocate a song in our set where I can blow to my heart's
content. I just need to choose the song.

And I'd like to respond to his generosity by choosing a song that gives him
a non-boring backing part to play. He plays slide guitar in open tunings,
and that limits us somewhat.

We've already dug into the Elmore James catalog for "Dust My Broom" and
"Shake Your Moneymaker," btw.

My preference would be for an instrumental, but what I've come up with so
far are a bunch of tunes with relatively standard guitar parts.

Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Bright moments,

Peter Beck
