Fundamentals of Open E


Slide Basics - Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground

In this lesson we introduce slide playing.  We focus on hand techniques like muting and dampening as well as how to place your fingers on your slide hand.

Take your time and play close attention to the sound of your slide.  How many different ways can you make it sound?  Listen for the dynamics of the music and it will help your playing.

Enjoy.

Corey that is really beautiful.  Should give me about 3 weeks worth of fun working through it :)

Can you tell us a little about the guitar you are using?

Many thanks again for sharing your expertise with us.

Steve.
