SLIDE GUI­TAR

Guitar Techniques - - CONTENTS -

In the sec­ond ar­ti­cle in this brand new se­ries Har­ri­son Marsh in­tro­duces acous­tic blues slide.

Son House’s Death Let­ter (1965) is an ex­am­ple of how ex­pres­sive early slide blues can be, as is El­more James’ Dust My Broom (1959). Martin Simp­son’s per­for­mance of Walking Blues is a les­son in acous­tic slide play­ing at its most re­fined. Fi­nally, Ry Cooder’s Feel­ing Bad Blues (1986) – in fact, any slide per­for­mance from Ry Cooder - will in­spire any­one want­ing to play slide gui­tar.
