Pete Madsen : Slide Guitar - Know The Players, Play The Music, Paperback Book

Pete Madsen : Slide Guitar - Know The Players, Play The Music Paperback


Guitarists learn the lives and playing styles of the world's best slide musicians Whether it's a bottleneck, a screwdriver, a metal tube, or a socket wrench you use, the tradition of placing a metal 'slide' on guitar strings, rather than fretting them, is a long and fascinating one.

There are acoustic and electric slide guitar traditions in many genres, including blues, folk, country and rock.

The newest addition to Backbeat Books' Fretmaster series, this book teaches players both the history and technique of slide guitar's masters, such as Brian Jones, Lowell George, Bonnie Raitt, and Robert Johnson.

While exploring their musical lives and legacy, the book provides lessons that give readers the skills and encouragement they need to emulate their musical heroes.

The accompanying CD offers specially recorded backing tracks in blues, folk, country, and rock, allowing readers to play along in their favorite style and explore new sounds.
