Welcome to Part I. In this introductory section which includes 10 video lessons, you’ll learn fundamental techniques for playing slide guitar.
What is ‘slide guitar’?
Slide, other than being a tool that you place on your finger, is a means to embellish what you’d normally play and make your guitar sound more lyrical—like a human voice.
Ariel was influenced by players such as Derek Trucks, George Harrison, Robbie MacIntosh, Blake Mills, Ry Cooder, and fellow Canadian, Kevin Breit. Check out their albums if you want to hear the explorations of expert slide guitar.
