This is a unique stylistic approach I stumbled upon many years ago when coming up with more pedal-steel-like runs that didn’t require bending. Rather, the utilize harmonics that substitute for normally fretted notes in the exact same positions, and when played properly with a “roll” style, can really make an entirely new sound on the guitar!

This subject may seem just like another fingerpicking idea, but in this case, we are truly playing a lead “part” above the constant bass. Also, most of the time, we see this bass in the “shuffle” or “dotted 8th” form, whereas this exercise is based on straight 8th notes, played at a fairly rapid clip.

The single most important aspect of all slide guitar playing is the ability with the right hand to block and damp successfully to cut out the unwanted notes and noises.

This is a style and sound I first encountered while following the great Clarence White of The Byrds in the mid-to late ‘Sixties. Clarence, along with Gene Parsons, had invented the B-string bender. I did not realize that this was how he was getting his bending licks, so I simply started doing it with my fingers, emulating the more “mechanical” sound of the bender, and of pedal steel guitar, which is an instrument I was also starting to play at the time.

As I’m sure you’ve been able to tell, standard tuning slide offers its own set of challenges and rules. Best of all, it also has some of the more unusual licks and positions to be achieved within slide guitar, and in this lesson we will address some of those ideas.
