September 20 ,2011

“Slide guitar. It’s a thing, man, a real type of thing. When you play that slide, you can really make that guitar talk, you can really make it sing.

My favorite slide guitar players are the players who are from and/or play in that Mississippi Delta style. When I first heard the legendary John Hammond perform live, I was absolutely blown away by his slide work. John typically uses an old National resophonic guitar for his slide numbers and man can he play.
