Keep Your Lamp Trimmed

Slide Technique and Melody Breakdown

We're re-issuing one of Corey's most popular lessons with re-mastered video, new sheet music and updated loop points. From Corey:

In this lesson I demonstrate the alternating bass line as well as the melody. Pay attention to your tempo (not too fast) and to the rhythm of the tune when getting the bass. I also discuss how to hold the slide and ways to minimize noises by damping with your palm as you play. Contact me with any questions or comments.
