Arlen Roth: Slide Guitar Lesson

Here's another short video lesson in beginning slide guitar technique, this time by Arlen Roth. Not only does he give great insight in the "how-to", he delivers some easy, great sounding basic licks. He is playing a Gibson SG, which is the model preferred by Derek Trucks, too.

Slide guitar is a lot of fun, but like he says, it's totally different than playing regular guitar.

Arlen's a really good player. Derek Trucks really picked up slide guitar well. Hate to sound "blasphemous".. but he actually seems to be able to give the late Duane Allman a run for his money.

If you haven't done so already, you should give Sonny Landreth a good listen. Seems to have taken the art of slide guitar playing to a whole nuvva level.
