    Thanks, Normster. I've been really busy these days, mostly working on the DVD ... I'm getting there with it, also making sure I do my 'Weekly Lesson' at Guitar for Beginners and Beyond. This week's is Moondance, check it out:

    That's a cool lesson, Kirk. Way different from the way I usually approach the song...which is a good thing. :D

    Hi Kirk -

    I really like your slide playing. Good backing as well!

    Here's my take . . .

    Kirk,

    Your playing is very cool. Some of my favorite.

    Very bubbly.

    Killer slide! And even killerer tone!! What were you using for gear? I was going to ask what tuning you used until I reread your post...standard or drop D?

    I'm just getting back into playing some slide and picked up a lap steel (very cool but still clueless, lol) so this is especially intriguing to me....choice of tunings has me a little twisted.

    Wonderfully melodic playing...no gratuitous wanking.

    Thanks for posting this.

    Michael

    Thanks, Michael.

    I was in dropped D, just the bass string down, and I went through my lttle Digitech RP100, believe it or not. It's got 99 ugly sounds, 1 good one!

    Heavy strings, heavy slide ... that's where most of the tone comes from.

    As for tunings, I often point out that standard is in fact several 'mini-open' tunings all rolled into one: major, major7, minor, minor7, 9th, sus4, 11th, 7th, augmented, diminished ... they're all there if you know where to look, and you're still in good old familiar standard. Dropping the bass string adds that extra power-chord to the mix. I'm in fact in the middle of doing a DVD on the subject.

    Cheers, many more tracks at http://www.soundclick.com/kirklorange
