I'm looking for some new songs that use a slide. I know of a couple songs like Scar Tissue by RHCP and What Is and What Should Never Be by Led Zep that use them in their solos but I want to find a couple more. I'm more interested in classic rock-type music but do like some modern rock similar to RHCP so basically any suggestions would be more than welcome. And I did search bar this. No results for anything that I didn't already know.

the best slide isn't in that genre, but check out Doug Martsch's solo album "Now You Know" songs like "window" and "instrumental" are good songs with slide

In my time of dying by leppelin, bad horsie by steve vai, check out the allman brothers,

Look up 'Blues'

Then try to learn slide.


Hound Dog Taylor, Elmore James and Johnny Shines will teach all there is to know about slide.

For newer stuff, look into Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes.

A good song to learn: Give Me Back My Wig- Hound Dog Taylor.

One of the sexiest slide parts I have ever heard comes out of the song What Is And What Should Never Be by Led Zeppelin.

Awesome song, check it out. The slide part is easy but (as previously stated) very sexy.

Allman Brothers!

Duane Allman was one of the most talented people to ever pick up a slide. There are countless amounts of old blues songs that involve slide, check out Taj Mahal.

If you haven't heard of Derek Trucks, I HIGHLY recommend you pick up one of his albums, ('Songlines' is a good place to start) though it may be a while before you'll be able to keep up with him!

Did you even bother reading my original post?

And to those (many) of you who are suggesting Derek Trucks, I'm def. gonna check him out. I can't ignore that when half of this thread is highly recommending him.

Thanks to everyone.

Obviously, Derek Trucks is a must. Warren Haynes as well.

Robert Johnson is a must if you want to hear some very early slide. Muddy Waters has some good stuff.

Believe it or not, Keith Richards has some nice slide work on some of the early Rolling Stones albums.

Elmore James is always good, and Duane Allman gives you an updated version of that.
"Live At The Fillmore East" is an amazing record for learning slide.

Sonny Landreth is interesting, as well. He plays in open E minor, which means you leave the G string alone instead of tuning up to G#. He frets notes BEHIND his slide alot, which sounds amazing.

"Tush" by ZZ Top has a slide solo, if I'm not mistaken.

Led Zeppelin- "When The Levee Breaks"

George Thorogood does some great slide work (think "who do you love" from the sam adams commercials)

Look up "Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac" It's the original lineup of the band back when they were a blues group in england in the late 60s. It also has some good slide work

Bonnie Raitt, Keb Mo, Taj Mahal are also great

Johnny Winter, Duane Allman

yes johnny winter is amazing soooo good, probaly one of my favorite blues players, but one of goerge harrisons songs has some pretty easy slide parts in it, it could be "sweet lord" but im not 100% that its the song im thinkin of but im pretty sure
#19
Anything by ry cooder is pretty sweet. check out "feelin bad blues". you'll find a million people playing it on youtube but it's a nice piece of music

This.

Also look up robert johnson or if you wanna see more modern recordings look up 'eric clapton robert johnson sessions' and if you wanna see a slide guitar master then see 'roy rogers'.

Jack white also plays slide alot

There's no need for that here. I'm open to just about anything as long as it has a slide.

And I greatly appreciate the bump. Lots of suggestions. It's going to take me a hell of a long time to get through it all and find what I like. Which looks like it might be everything. I've been getting into blues recently so that seems like a huge pool of potential. Once again, thanks to everyone with suggestions.

Fun Fact: I was listening to music earlier today and was surprised to hear Slash using one at ~2:15 on Rocket Queen. Never noticed that before.
