Nothing sounds as bluesy as a slide guitar, and this DVD shows how it's done on electric and acoustic, as a soloist or with a group. Using classic blues tunes Little Red Rooster; Sittin' on Top of the World; Reconsider Baby; The Sky Is Crying; Farther On Up The Road; and One Way Out, Fred Sokolow shows you how to play and improvise slide in the styles of some of the greatest bluesman: Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Mississippi Fred McDowell, and Duane Allman. Fred offers instruction in: 1)Solos, backup licks, turnarounds and fills in three tunings - open G, open D and standard. 2) How to play slide in any key 3) How to improvise slide solos in standard and open tunings. As always, Fred's video lessons are clear and easy to follow.

A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD. 70 minutes.
