Watch the Slide Study 8 online guitar lesson by Sonny Landreth from Slide Supernatural

On this one we are in E tuning and I'd like to show you some ways to take open strings to create tension and release in some interesting ways. I would like to encourage you to try different things, move fingers around, and find what sounds nice to your ear. For me, what I love about this particular passage is that it's such a big open sound with lots of open strings and I'm only fretting two different notes. If you'll notice I'm using the major seventh and thirteenth and all I do is invert those, just swap places, and they’re the same notes but an octave apart. Now I walk down and you get the sharp 11th which suggests the Lydian mode which I love. This study set this up for study number nine.
