Watch the Open G 8th Note Slide online guitar lesson by Richard Gilewitz from Acoustic Slide Guide

Open G One 8th Note Slides - is a twelve measure exercise and one of the simplest in this collection similarly to the first attempts you will be making in the Open D segment of the program. Once again this effort involves the very basic movement of the slide moving either one or two frets up the neck allowing the student to identify 'targeting' locations as they develop hand/eye coordination. In this particular case, the slide is adjusted during the exercise to play one, two or three strings simultaneously as 8th notes. Pairs of fingers are attempted as well within the picking patterns.
