  • Hi GMC!

    Today we gonna play some slide guitar over a classic twelve bar blues progression in the key of E.
    The guitar is tuned in standard tuning.

    Some important tips when playing with a bottleneck :

    - To get the correct pitch, the note is sounded by placing the slide above the fret.
    - Mute unwanted notes/noise with your picking hand and keep the fingers behind the slide to mute strings.
    - Don't press too hard on the strings.

    I mainly use the E pentatonic minor scale:
