Dave T Just got a slide guitar (27) RE: Just got a slide guitar 05 Oct 98


Hi Einnor,
I don't think I have any advice on instructional material beyond the comments so far (all good). I've been trying to develop my slide technique for a while. I've tried a number of different slides: glass, brass and steel. I prefer the brass one, but I know many people who prefer one of the others. It's a matter of what fits your instrument, style and what feels right. For me, the biggest hurdle was to get myself to play slide aggressively. I like the way Son House plays: definitely not for the faint of heart. If you have a favourite slide artist, try to think what it is about their playing that gets to you, then put your own stamp on it. Have fun and all the best learning slide; let us know how it goes.

Didn't you post a thread a while back about blues artists? By the way, where's Powell River, B.C.?
