This is a very basic tutorial on slide guitar playing. It is a good idea for any guitarist to experiment with slide guitar playing because it reveals the notes between the frets – the notes we don’t usually hear. You can buy a slide from any guitar store or you can make one from a wine bottle, lipstick holder or any metal or glass cylindrical shaped object. The only requirements are that it fits over your pinky and it’s long enough to go across the neck of your guitar.
You might want to try an open tuning or two. Open E is E B E G# B E. This tuning does put stress on the guitar neck because you are actually tuning three strings higher. Open G is D G D G B D.
