INTRODUCTION
The aim of this book is to present you with the essential techniques required to play electric
slide guitar, while providing a hands-on understanding of the variety of slide styles that exist within
the blues idiom. The book begins with the open G tuning, proceeds to open E tuning, and concludes
with playing in standard tuning. While there is material at a variety of levels throughout the book,
important matters of technique are introduced chapter by chapter. E tuning is not "harder" than G tuning,
or vice versa, but as the chapters on open E tuning come later in the book, that is the point at
which more advanced techniques are discussed, whereas basics of right and left hand technique are
covered in the earlier chapters on G tuning.
A Note About the Tunings
There are four tunings that are considered standard for the electric slide guitar: open G, open
D, open A, and open E. Open G and open A offer essentially the same sound as one another, a whole
step apart (open G= D, G, D, G, B, D; open A= E, A, E, A, C#, E, low to high). Open D and open E
likewise offer essentially the same sound as one another, a whole step apart (open D= D, A, D, F#, A,
D, open E= E, B, E, G#, B, E, low to high). For this book, I have chosen to present all of the examples
(except for those in standard tuning) in either open G or open E tuning, rather than distinguish
between various artists' use of G or A tuning, and D or E tuning. I have done this for two reasons. The
first is to enable you to compare examples from different styles of playing within a given chapter
quickly and easily, without having to retune or capo by a whole step, or transpose in your head. The
second reason is that G and E tunings share some familiar fret positions and bar chord locations with
standard tuning. This makes orientation to each of these open tunings a little easier. More importantly,
it makes it much easier to translate what you have learned in open tunings back into standard tuning,
should you wish to play without t::hanging to an open tuning-for instance, if you use a slide for just
part of a song.
Electric slide guitar is at the heart of electric blues, from the pioneering postwar recordings of
Muddy Waters and Elmore James to the blues-rock of Duane Allman, Johnny Winter and Lowell
George, from timeless, genre-busting originals like Earl Hooker and Ry Cooder to contemporary
artists like Bonnie Raitt, Roy Rodgers and Dave Hole. The diversity among slide players is remarkable.
Far from being limited to the generic sound stereotyped in every bar band's version of "Dust My
Broom," the world of electric slide guitar is as broad, deep, and eclectic as the blues itself.
