The Benefits of Slide Guitar

Post by MattyPretends116 » January 14th, 2006, 10:07 am

I botched the website address for Sonny Landreth.

http://www.sonnylandreth.com/

I added an "e," to Sonny, apologies to those who clicked the bad link.

I'll make sure Nick and David know about the typo. They can probably fix it on the lesson page.

Paul fixed it. Everything's fine now.

Hey, Matt, good lesson. But not "everyone knows Freebird" yet, so thanks for tossing that in there. 8)

Slide is great for people like me with Cubital Tunnel Syndrome.


It gives my pinky, reason to exist.

Hey thanks for the comments, glad you guys liked it! :) Good point, Doug, although I intended for that to come across as everyone knows Freebird as a song, no necessarily how to play it. Guess I should have worded that a bit differently. Thanks again!

Yeah, pretty much everyone knows of the song, if not how to play it. I remember a joke from some years back that in any crowd listening to live music, there'd always be one guy yelling "Freebird!" In fact, there's a country song out now with that in it. Something about "singing off-pitch, but he knows every word." ("Billy's Got His Beer Goggles On," in case anyone wants to look it up.) :lol:
Anyway, now I have something more than just the chords to work on. Thanks again. 8)
