Just curious what everyones favorite slide guitar songs are. Mine is Slide Thing by SRV. BTW part of the reason I'm asking is because I'm trying to think of stuff to learn.
I'm not sure why these threads keep popping up all the time in GG&A. Slide songs, slide songs, slide songs.

Random. Look at Derek Trucks.
I'm putting my GAS on hold
for a couple months in order to pimp my ride.

Don't judge me.
Slide Thing is basically a immitation of Hound Dog Taylor+Elmore James.

I like a lot of slide songs
Listen to Already Free from Derek Trucks. He goes back to his blues roots on that album.

Live at the Fillmore East by the Allman Brothers Band has great slide playing by Duane.

Irish Tour '74 features awesome slide playing by Rory Gallagher.

I am also a slide player, and these albums have inspired me a lot. Elmore James and Robert J. are also big inspirations, but I doubt that you'd enjoy playing that type of music. It takes patience, I'll tell you that.

I like every slide song on The White Stripes (self titled) and De Stijl, both of course by The White Stripes.
