Go Ozzfan! Haha. That was neat. Kinda reminded me of Catch Hell Blues by The White Stripes but then it kinda went away from that. How about you find a drummer (if not already in a band) to join you in this?

Haha, I've been listening to a LOT of White Stripes lately, actually. I saw Jack doing a lot of what I'd call slide playing on steroids, because I'd usually seen it done on acoustics, dobros, or really smooth-like on an electric. It wasn't really based off of anything though.

Thanks guys!

Haha. Thanks guys.

Oh, and EMB, if you don't put it into an open tuning, it sounds terrible. I use open E for electric and it works pretty well.

I think its great you are trying to learn slide ! :) MORE folks should improve their skills in this way.
Hell, Just learning all the Chords (Tilted Slide, Slide + Fingers or fingers no slide) in the 5 main open tunings takes a seeming lifetime, but if ya study hard, you'll get 'em and be a 'leg up' on the competition, lol!@
i learned slide in Standard tuning from one of my teachers from the 70's, *Hector Qirko (*just moved down from Chicago and a gig with Lonnie Brooks)
and
Standard, tuning slide is all "touch" esp on an electric.
but
Since my favs (Slide players) played acoustics, thats where i mainly concentrate my attention, Usually in Open D but at Times In G, Am, or E-maj)
Trying to play a Slide can be frustrating as hell (took me about 12 years to fee;l "comfortable" with it, but dont give up!
keep on practicing and practicing and practicing and eventually you'll "get there", chords, riffs, leads and all. I just takes a T-O-N
of patience and 2-Tons of practice time.

some guys to listen to that may help:
(da god ->)Mississippi Fred McDowell
Son House
Blind Willie Johnson
Duane Allmann
Charlie Patton
Jeff beck
etc...
but most notably 90% the Delta Blues that came out of the south in the 30's 40's and 50's
also
A Great companion book for anyone interested in Blues =
The Land Where Blues Began - Alan Lomax (yeah THE Alan Lomax)

like i said ...i am thrilled to death to hear someone trying to learn slide :) Kudos !!

keep it up Bro! you'll get it!

Cheers

and
RAWK!

Oh, @Carl, thanks man. I think learning slide actually contributed from playing with my uncle's bluegrass band for so long. Thanks for all the slide terms and stuff too haha. I've been meaning to try different tunings, but have only messed around with open E so far. I'm going to keep experimenting.
