Watch the Derek Trucks Style: Open E online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Slide Guitar Power

A leading light in slide guitar today (and for the last decade-plus) is the incredible Derek Trucks, whose masterful slide work can be heard within the context of the Allman Brothers Band, the Derek Trucks Band or the Trucks-Tedeschi Band. Derek has an absolutely distinct sound and approach, having mastered the microtonal movements more commonly assocuated with Indian music and applied them to his blues, rock, jazz, R&B inspired music. Like Duane Allman, Derek always plays slide in an open E tuning (he plays everything in the open E tuning), and this example offers a solo in his style played over a "Blue Sky" type of backing track.
