• Slide Guitar Basics – Some Experience Suggested

  • with Hubby Jenkins

The distinctive sound of blues being playing on guitar with a bottleneck slide has its roots in Hawaii, the Diddley bow and its one-stringed ancestors in Africa. In this class, we will study the proper technique for holding a slide and intonation. We will begin with the first known bottleneck style recording by Sylvester Weaver and work our way to Delta blues styles.  (Some slides will be available for sale in SAMW shop.)
