I’ll be the first to admit, that I love the sound of slide guitar but was always mystified by it…
Whether it be Elmore James on his classic, “Dust My Broom,” or something more modern like Bonnie Raitt on her version of “Pride And Joy,” or Derek Trucks on “Drown In My Own Tears,” the sound of the slide guitar has always just struck me as soulful and full of great ideas and emotion…
But if you’re like me, figuring out how Duane Allman puts some of those ideas together (in an open tuning, no less) was nothing short of a Sherlock Holmes mystery… and I’m no Watson.
In fact, it took me many years of research and learning a lot of other things before the open tunings and some of the “tricks” of slide playing really started to click for me.
So now I’ve taken all those years and all those hours with my SG and a collection of slides and distilled them down into 5 Easy Slide Solos that you can play and incorporate into your own slide playing style.
Here’s What You’ll Get With 5 Easy Slide Solos…
- 5 “Textbook” slide solos in the styles of Duane Allman, Bonnie Raitt, Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, and Elmore James. If you’re learning slide, these are the people you want to learn from!
- Full speed and slow speed versions of each solo for you to play along with so you can work with the slow version until you get it down, then move to the full speed for when you’re ready to show off to the world.
- Jam Tracks for all 5 solos so once you’ve got it all memorized and under your fingers, you can take away my playing and do it all on your own. This is the best way to prepare for playing these live with a band.
- Complete breakdowns of each and every lick in each and every solo.
- Complete transcriptions of each solo with the licks labelled. I’ve made it dead-simple to follow along and know where you are at all times so you can learn the solos as fast as humanly possible.
- Close ups of me playing with both the right and left hand… The picking hand is extremely important in slide and you’ll be able to see how I use my fingers on my picking hand to mute and strike notes at all times.
- How to handle the main open tunings you’ll encounter, open D, open E, and open G tunings.
- A bucketful of great slide licks that you can use over and over again in literally hundreds (if not thousands) of tunes.
