Hey GMC,

It's been awhile since a I post something or since I play the guitar. I married this summer and went to much drinking and celebrating. Now after a month "It's time to get serious about the guitar" again tongue.gif

Is there any instructor like to make a blues guitar lesson with a bottleneck (slide guitar)? Maybe in style like these youtube clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91-3T0bA-04

Or like this man: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PECpA9a_2zQ biggrin.gif with a teaspoon

Thx Pio Jr.

Well muris has done this slide lesson, but slide is such an interesting topic and deserves way more attention I think!

I may come up with something but itnwill take time, got to prepare gear (put high action, hard gauge strings and heavy slide and may be some alternative tunning.

Sure did...it sounds great! I have a long way to go before I am good with it though! It takes a very gentle touch!

Slide generally requires very gentle and specific kind of touch techniques in order to sound good. That and thick strings.

Aah yes, higher action is good to have too.

But thick strings and higher action are not mandatory - I've seen a couple of people playing with regular action and thin strings and it still sounds pretty cool. They just got the technique down nicely. smile.gif

I'll be looking for that lesson also. I have a collection of slides I have not done much with yet, including the new V-Pick slide is on the way.

My original goal was to play slide, but then I decided I needed to learn scales better first.

I just bought a Slide Extension nut from Stewmac.com(Guitar repair supplier) that fits over the existing nut of your guitar and raises the action for Slide without having to resetup the guitar(Just need to loosen the strings , slip on, and tune up), and just got my Dunlop thick glass slides today(Forgot about V-pick having one), so this lesson discussion is perfect timing.

Some people use standard tuning and some use an alternate tuning - I'll have to look at the pros and cons as I dive into this.

I tried to use alternate tunings, like open D and similar, but then I realized that I can't get a grasp of all the stuff I wanna do on the fretboard, so I moved to standard, and now I can play a lot more stuff. Just a thought for those who start with slide smile.gif

I agree. I know standard tuning is not that popular for slide but one thing that confuses me is all the more common slide open tunings(Such as Open-G) are great for playing major chords , but I can't see how to play a minor chord in those tunings. Am I missing something. In standard tuning, you can play the 3 high strings(G B E) to get a minor chord(Such as Em in open strings) or a major chord with the D G B Strings ( G if played open). This is assuming we are playing slide straight across strings.

I have been searching the net to see how to play a minor chord in an Open-G or an Open-D(Another popular slide tuning) but have not been able to find anything. Does anybody know how they do play minors in those tunings with a slide. or do sliders not play minor chords very often

I must be missing something as I can't see a reason to want to not use standard tuning in Slide.


Thanks,
