Another shout out for the great Brett Garsed - not sure if it's been mentioned that he is also able to play both slide and his incredible legato lines on the same guitar (or at least I'm not aware of any adjustments made to action height etc). His song Be Here Now has one of my all time favourite musical transitions at around 00:40 which uses slide to sublime effect
Blake Mills, Ariel Posen, Joey Landreth.
Joey Landreth and Ariel Posen
Rick Williams (ex Georgia Satellites) is a pretty simplistic player, but I always loved his parts.
to me, slide is a lot like harp (the portable version) - usually it's not about sophistication, you have butts to kick !
and Rick's a master at that ...
Funny to see how people respond without reading any previous replies...
Ed King. Steve Gaines.
I really don't know what kind of facial hair any of them wear at the moment. So I don't know who it is you are trying to compliment.
I am not surprised that Rolling Stone made the same observation. But I can't imagine why that makes you giddy.
If you like slide you might want to check out more than one song by Foghat.
Even if you can copy his "easy" stuff you must be quite accomplished.
There is nobody around now that would deserve to load Mr Prices gear for him.
You’re a fan, I get it and he was “interesting” for his time but really 90% of his stuff, that I’m aware of, is not that overly complicated. I quite liked “Open” when it came out but, Sonny Landreth, Lowell George, even Mac Gayden more interesting and challenging to me.
By way of contrast...
I miss Kofi.
Eric sardinas, totally original style. Criminally overlooked imo. Can play the blues with the best of them and also conjures up hendrix/van halen/johnny winter.My favorite not only slide player but one of my favorite musicians and song writers.
He is pretty good. I saw him open for Steve Vai. He tore **** up...
Google crap's getting out of hand!? I watched the derek trucks video on here someone posted.Went to you tube and saw they posted about 20 derek trucks video's under suggested video's.I watch some christian type video's and the suggestions for others related disappear immediately, i watch something hollyweird related and I get inundated with hellywood crap!smh
Both of them are less notable for playing slide on “standard” six-string guitar than for their work on steel guitar. Liesz plays lap steel and pedal steel guitar, and Lanois plays pedal steel guitar.
Taylor’s a very good slide player, but I’m pretty sure he’s playing lap steel here. Wikipedia credits him with “Hawaiian guitar,” and I think that refers to this cut and means “lap steel.”
That’s some of the most laughable—and therefore weakest—trolling I’ve ever seen.
No one has mentioned Luther Dickinson yet?
I wouldn’t call him experimental, but I’d call him “great,” and “a master,” and “a virtuoso.”
Came here to post this. Rod was a great intro to slide for my teenage ears.
Kelly Joe Phelps is an amazing bottleneck player. Not in the same sense as any of the guys mentioned above but in a very modern take on country blues. One of the best ever.
Billy never gets the love he deserves as a slide player. I think he's one of the best.
In the new SRV biography, there's a story about Stevie messing around with a slide during sound check and George Thorogood was on the bill and walked in. Stevie invited him to come up on stage and jam and Thorogood declined.
I can't ever remember seeing footage of SRV playing slide, but would love to hear/see some.
