Watch the Slides and Grace Notes online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from Focus On: Standard Tuning Slide

A big part of what makes slide playing sound like it does is all the ways you can get in and out of a note. Plenty of open-tuned slide playing is done one string at a time (rather than with the big honking triads of, say, the classic “Dust My Broom” intro) so if you can dial in some of the nuances in this section, you’ll be a good way down the road to calling up some authentic-sounding moves.
