Slide technique

Y'all come on in and sit a spell. All things Slide and alternate tuning. Celtic, country...whatever. Get your fill of DADGAD, open G and whatever tickles your fancy. Strictly on topic please.

Slide technique

Post by dan_c » December 30th, 2010, 12:37 pm


I'm trying to learn specific slide technique like these: @ 2:28 @ 3:50

Does anyone know how to play these kind of slides? It seems to me like a kind of double slide up and down a tone but I can't get the right sound.

trying to capture the tone one hears from another player, especially like Hendrix and Clapton, can be difficult. these two use some effects, but they are both killer players with incredible technique...tone for sure is in their fingers.
I am not sure what slide techniques you are pointing out. they both use double stops (two fingers on two strings) when they slide up or down the neck. sometimes they bend both or just one string. that is a good technique that can be had with practice.

agree: these are sliding double stops, not playing with a slide. did the mods move this to the wrong place?
