View Full Version : Mr. Lindley

I've been really getting into slide playing lately since my Eastwood Stratotone copy arrived last month. This week it's been in Open A tuning. I've been listening to a bunch of different slide players for inspiration, but I keep going back to David Lindley for his melodicism, searing tone, and wacko humor. I recorded this little ditty earlier while I was goofin' around with the melody to Clapton's "Motherless Children". See if you can name the quote I stumble into at the end...

Loved this one

Lindley, not Lindly, right? Great playing, as usual.

Oops. Thanks Bryan, I meant Lindley. :)

compressor?.. tuned eaeac#e? I never liked playing slide in open G (always played Open E) Now I figured out why I never liked it... tried to force it in the wrong position :jo Thanks for the lesson! I always preferred rythem and lead in open G but couldnt make slide sound "right":NUTS

I wasn't using a compressor pedal, but a Lovepedal Balance into a COT50 and a Valveboy tube od ceartainly adds some sustain. The camera mic does add a bit of compression of its own.
