I just recently discovered this gem and it motivated me to learn slide. What is a good version to learn that it technically feasable for me?

I do like Elmore's version. I read somewhere that the Robert Johnson original was fingerpicked. I personally like the slide.

Ooh. Standard tuning. Thats my one peeve about slide, I hate to retune. I'll have to check that one out.
