This week we will discuss the basics of slide playing and break down the side riffs in the tune. Our main focus note will be to marry the alternating bass with the slide melody. If you are having any difficulties, make sure that your alternating bass is solid and then try playing the bass only while singing the melody. The best approach is to play everything very slowly and then pick up the pace bit by bit.
