so I just learned the concept of slide guitar today and i'd like to learn how to play better. problem is, I don't listen to much old country or bluegrass type stuff, but i do enjoy some blues. However if you can find me songs with slide guitar used in the rock universe as well, that'd be really awesome because I want to put slide guitar type stuff in my rock music.

It's a blues song but "If I had possession over judgement day", the cover by Clapton is what got me to buy a slide...as for rock songs, I dont really know. I know More human than human by Zombie has some slide in it.

Who Do You Love? - George Thorogood

He has a lot of slide stuff, really.


Also, look for some of Johnny Winter's songs. He's amazing at slide.

If you want somethign heavier, Bad Horsie by Steve Vai has slide bits.

There's generally a lot of White Stripes stuff with slide, Catch Hell Blues, Let's Build A Home and tonnes more.

George Thorogood practically always uses a slide.

Of course, what can be most fun is using a slide in a song that isn't meant for one.
