Anatomy of a slide solo in open E tuning, part 4
We have now arrived at the fourth and final column analyzing a slide solo in open E tuning that Andy Aledort played over a backing track by guitarist Jim Oblon. (If you don’t know Jim, he’s a fantastic guitar player that you should check out!)
Andy Aledort teaches slide guitar, a technique that just about every guitar player we’ve ever known
has been fascinated by. Unlike the sounds that are created by fretting notes conventionally, with the fingers, a hard, smooth object, called a slide, is instead pressed against the strings.
