There are many books that show you how to play slide with lots of riffs and scales but often what is overlooked is to just play simple melodies you recognize. Playing these tunes will help you develop correct intonation and important techniques like muting. There are 7 main slide techniques that you will master and put into practice as presented in the how to play slide pages. The included slide exercises also help to reinforce the 7 main principles of slide playing that you will apply to the 25 tunes presented here.
The 25 tunes are some of the most well known traditional, classical, blues & western tunes. They are arranged specifically for slide guitar in standard tuning. Playing in standard tuning offers many rewards without the trouble of re-tuning which again is often overlooked in most slide guitar books. The tunes are in relative order of difficulty and perfect for those new to slide guitar. Even the simplest song can be difficult when considering the challenges of playing with good tone and tuning. Most of the tunes are arranged to keep the melody on one or two strings so a consistent tone can be produced. This is a common practice and much easier to play when less string skipping is involved. Some of the arrangements have the tablature written in the middle or down the fretboard to facilitate easier position changes when switching between notes. The added fingerboard charts are a reference for those that prefer to read the notation instead of the tablature. With this collection of tunes you will learn all the fundamentals of playing slide guitar with a little practice and of course the right slide and correct action.
