Nothing sounds as bluesy as a slide guitar, and this DVD shows you how it's done on electric and acoustic, solo 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 the great bluesmen - Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Mississippi Fred McDowell and Duane Allman.
In this DVD lesson you will learn:
Close-ups of both hands help you see just how it's done and the accompanying tab/music booklet makes it easy to follow the arrangements. Fred's teaching is clear and easy to understand. This DVD lesson is a great introduction to the soulful world of bottleneck/slide guitar.

Review: Great Introductory DVD on slide. I have checked out other DVDs on learning slide guitar, and this one seems the most straightforward. Nice, calm, low-key teaching by Sokolow, with several good slide tunes taught. Nice and basic, yet lots taught here. - Ron K/Amazon Customer Review
Review: This dvd is a pretty comprehensive look at this style of playing. The instructor is easy to follow and the pace is reasonable enough so that anyone who is experienced isn't completely bored; but beginners are able to get a grasp at the same time. - JC/Amazon Customer Review
