Slide guitar is a brillant skill/technique to mix in with your standard playing approaches. It’s superb for accompaniment fills, doing lead lines as well as generating a driving rhythm. It can make use of standard tuning but more often than not will employ an open tuning e.g. E, D, G.
We take this subject one stage further and discuss where altered tunings come in without resorting to a bottleneck e.g. for rhythm and fingerstyle. Obviously tunings such as dropped D, double dropped D and DADGAD come to mind (but there are a myriad of these tunings). We discuss where they are useful and what’s the best way of starting to explore them.
