Watch the Slurring & Half Step Slides online guitar lesson by Mike Zito from Blues Americana

I really have a lazy left hand approach. Very loose on my left hand for an almost slurring fluid kind of style. Probably from listening to Van Halen. I found the short half step slides added this slurring effect. There are a lot of in-between notes when we are thinking chromatically. These in-between notes can be slurred and slid through while phrasing. They add tension and flavor.
