Acoustic Slide Guitar 2

Advance your slide guitar technique and emotional expression by learning songs, licks and slide styles of traditional and contemporary Americana and Roots artists. The focus of this session will be on slide players such as Ry Cooder, Keb’ Mo’, John Fahey, Kelly Joe Phelps, Lowell George and Leo Kottke. In addition to solo slide songs, students will learn to add slide to a duet or ensemble, including songs from artists such as John Prine, Lucinda Williams, and Elizabeth Cotton – that may not have originally included slide guitar. Students will play in both open G and open D tunings and advance their slide lead playing and improvisational skills.
