    Stuff on playing slide

    I am by no means a virtuoso on playing slide--So I will let others teach it--but I will share some videos on it& maybe make some comments--after all as a guitar forum this is a good idea for us to do.
    This guitar could also be in the Interesting Axe Thread:



    I am going to be spending some time with these just to see what I can improve at.

    Forgot about this one--here's another video
    I am finding it helpful to watch stuff like this
    But I am nowhere near being all that good--just for fun so far...

    If you want to try it in standard tuning...

    I tried to play lap steel but could not get the hang of the thing

    Lap steel is a different technique--some overlap for sure--but it is different enough--I have tried both.

    The main reason I don't have a lap steel is the time I would like to have to learn it well...

    But I have tried my Cardboard Cigar Box guitar as a lap steel as well...

    (Hmm gives me an idea of a video o post later in this thread)

    Taking the time to learn it was exactly my problem too. That and it really wouldn't suitable in any music we play on stage

    but you should have music you play that's different for playing on your own-helps with creativity & developing style--and keeping things from going stale.
    So slide in standard tuning may be your thing...
