Ex­am­ple5 BRIAN JONES: SLIDE (NOR­MAL TUN­ING)

cd track 64

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: British R&b -

Brian fre­quently played slide in open tun­ing, but for sim­plic­ity, we’ve kept this ex­am­ple in reg­u­lar tun­ing. Al­ways po­si­tion your bot­tle­neck di­rectly above the frets, not be­hind them as you would when fret­ting with fin­gers, to avoid sound­ing flat. Keep un­wanted strings muted by rest­ing your un­used pick­ing hand fin­gers on them. Many slide play­ers mute us­ing the first fin­ger of their slide hand, rest­ing it gen­tly across all six strings.
