Hello friends,
In today’s lesson I’ll show you how to play slide guitar! This tutorial will demonstrate how to play a clear and pitch-perfect note, how to perform a major triad, and how to perform the cmajor scale using your slide. These techniques are commonly used by players like Derek Trucks, Duane Allman, George Thorogood and Johnny Winter. Let’s get started!

Slides I recommend in medium size, you may need something bigger or smaller:
