I like to use a small pocket knife sometimes to get that old-timey
sound.  Also long-necked beer bottles work pretty well.  I grab it by
the neck like I'm gonna smash it over someone's head and then play slide
with the bottle part.  I tried putting it on my finger but it wobbled
too much.  Also a heavy lipstick tube works pretty well in a pinch (held
between the fingers like a knife).
