Watch the Muddy Waters Style: Open A online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Slide Guitar Power

This excerpt begins with a duplication of the vocal melody as played on the high strings before settling down into the repeated primary lick, one that is rooted on the D and G strings with alternating movement between the third fret and the open strings. In bar 5, I barre across multiple strings at the fifth fret to sound the four chord, D. At the turnaround, I lay the slide across all of the strings but pick only the fifth and third strings, sounding the song's melodic element in sliding octaves.
