Fun and Easy Guitar Technique You Must Know

Lesson ID: TB237

In this lesson, we’ll cover a very important guitar technique that you’ll use in just about any blues song you’ll ever learn.

The Slide.

I’m not talking about a bottleneck slide, but the act of sliding a fretted note up or down the neck to reach a second note. It’s a very fluid and connected sound and though it has a few nuances, it’s surprisingly easy to nail. In the video you’ll learn:

  • The basics of the slide movement
  • How to slide from nowhere for a cool effect
  • A musical example to help you put the technique into action

When you are ready, there are two ways I can help you:
