Watch the Standard Tuning Slide: 1 online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from SoloCraft

So, you've always wanted to play slide guitar but just didn't know where to start? Well, you came to the right place and the right course. In this section of SoloCraft I am going to guide you through the essential techniques used for great slide guitar playing and we are going to do all that in standard tuning on your regular guitar. You will also learn that new techniques don't always mean new scales and ultimately that equates to getting started quickly playing cool slide licks over the great backing tracks provided for you in every section of this course.

Playing slide guitar as you can imagine is very different from playing lead guitar with your fingers but I'm going to make that transition easier for you with these video lessons. I'll be covering left and right hand muting techniques, positioning of the slide for correct intonation and note choices from within scale and arpeggio patterns that you may already know in standard tuning. Check out the performances I've recorded for you and watch what I am doing. Follow the tab and notation for this solo after you've watched the lesson plans and it will all make more sense. So, grab your guitar and slide and we'll get started.
