Death Letter by Son House is pretty easy, or you can play The White Stripes' version of the song. Also In My Time of Dying by Led Zeppelin isnt so bad. Just make sure you're producing the proper notes with the slide, as sloppy slide playing can sound pretty terrible.

play any song that you are comfortable playing and then add your own slides in. i love playing back in black so that is the song that i started doing this on. messing around with songs adds your own sound to the song and it doesnt seem like you are copying the original artist quite as much
they call og or nothing at all!!

Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes should be a nice and easy way to start slide guitar.

Basically anything you want to play slide on will work, whether it originally has slide or not. I use slide on a lot of things that didn't originally have a slide part, sometimes it works, sometimes it bombs...oh well...

i was going to try to learn slide, but they dont make slides big enough for my fingers


Look around at antique stores and resale shops, find a small bottle that fits. I have an old Alka Seltzer bottle probably 50 years old that works great but is too big for my fingers. I can use it, but it's too hard to control. I've found 8 or 10 others that work well, some sound better than others, I'm still collecting them looking for the one that sounds best. Usually I get them for $1, sometimes less. Yard sales turn up a bottle now and then, and if you let friends and relatives know you're looking, some friend's grandma might have an old bottle lying around she'll give you, you never know. KNow someone who is a machinist? Sometimes they can make one out of brass, that's what I did when I was a machinist. Found some old brass stock useless for anything else, stayed over after work one day for 15 minutes (with the boss' permission to do this) and I have a spare brass bar if I ever lose my old favorite.
Hmmm...I wonder what this button does...
