  • A good way to improve your sliding vocabulary is to take licks that you play usually with your fingers and play similar using your bottleneck. Those licks transferred over to slide technique needs some creativity solutions to sound nicely. Sometimes you need to find a different way to adapt them to the bottleneck and eliminate noises. Here you can find out 5+5 independent examples, is not a song, you don't have to play them one after another.
