Could someone show me some good blues slide riffs in open-G I can practice. I need to work on improving my technique.

I know how to play Death Letter by Son House, which is a fairly easy song to play and doesn't have as much slide as I would like.

I can't really find any good sources online for blues slide. Especially not old acoustic slide(like son house, skip james, blind willie johnson, etc...) which is what I would prefer to play.

Thanks
