Watch the Hand Techniques online guitar lesson by Geoff Hartwell from Guitar Lab: Electric Slide

This lesson will get you acquainted with 100% of your hands. You’ll get to know the main ideas for your plucking hand, as well as your slide hand. We’ll study them individually so you can focus on one at a time, and then we’ll put them together with musical examples. While it’s important to make sure your slide is gently resting on the strings (NOT pressing all the way to the fretboard!) and that your notes are in tune (use the actual frets as a guide but use your EARS for intonation), pay special attention to your plucking hand techniques - Your plucking hand is responsible for all of your articulation and muting of unwanted notes. Relax, practice carefully, and you’ll be playing like Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes in no time!
