i want to start to play in the sliding style with the slider thingy.
all i got right now is an epiphone sg, boss me-25 effect and frontman 25r amp.
i'll probably buy a slider asaf and i want to know if thats all that i need equipment wise.
and in addition, if you know a really good website that can teach you sliding, or even famous slider(just know derek trucks) it would be a good starting point.

All you need is a slide, glass, ceramic, whatever you want. The hardest thing with slide guitar is keeping your pressure consistent. The one time I tried it, I couldn't keep my pressure consistent as I slid around, so it sounded bad. I'm so used to curving my fingers that I'd put too much pressure on the higher strings.

This series helped me out when i got a slide.

That reminds me, I havent practised slide in ages.

Btw, you'll find it easier if you have a higher action and thicker strings.


PS - I saw Derek Trucks in London last week. He and his wife were guests on BB King's stage, along with Slash, Mick Hucknall and Ronnie Wood. Best gig ever.
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do
