    Nice lesson, great tone.

    I would suggest that slide playing did not come from pedal steel tho'. The Pedal steel guitar is relatively modern.

    You gotta go down to Mississippi about one hundred years ago. The diddley bow then translating that to guitar with a bottle, knife, or metal tube.
    I'm not a real expert on the history part but something like that I think.

    Hey 9:
    Thanks for the words! I think the only thing I was using was a keeley katana pushing a knon knone or zendrive, can't remember exactly what was on durin the intro, but next time I do a demo I'll be sure to site all the gear. Thanks for watching tho!

    Aiq, thank you very much for the words! Totally understand what you are saying, didn't realize until I was balls deep in editing a few days later, sometimes crap just flies out of my mouth, but thanks for enjoying it!

    The tone is so clear it really shows off your technique. It doesn't sound muddy like a lot of OD'd tones do. More highs/high mids than most slide players can get away with without being piercing. Very nice!

    Dood, that totally means a ton, I very much appreciate it! I actually thought about this comment today a lot and I think that Derek trucks is absolutely my favorite slide player, I actually saw him play once in a very small setting maybe 50 people there and I was able to really just ingest what was coming out... That was when he was playing a Washburn through a cranked fender super, so I'm pretty sure I base my sound around that ya know? N e way, again thank you!
