Standard Tuning Slide Guitar is a compilation of slide guitar techniques accumulated by author and über-guitarist Greg Koch for over 30 years. With detailed notation and tablature for over 100 playing examples and video demonstrations, Koch demonstrates how to play convincing blues, rock, country, and gospel-tinged slide guitar while in standard tuning by using techniques and approaches that emulate common altered slide tunings, such as open E or open G. Drawing from a well of influences, from Blind Willie Johnson and Elmore James to Duane Allman and Sonny Landreth, Greg will show you how to create these slide guitar sounds in standard tuning while also providing ideas to inspire the development of your own style.

Standard Tuning Slide Guitar is a compilation of standard-tuned slide techniques accumulated by the author for over 30 years. The point of this book is to demonstrate how to play convincing blues, rock, country, and gospel-tinged slide guitar while in standard tuning by using techniques and approaches that will make you sound, at times, as though you are in other tunings, such as open E or open G. Drawing from a well of influences, from Blind Willie Johnson and Elmore James to Duane Allman and Sonny Landreth, the author will show you how to achieve some of these sounds in standard tuning and will hopefully provide ideas that inspire the development of your own style.
Thve, You Witt Need GUITAR. An acoustic or electric guitar will work for these lessons. Some approaches might be demonstrated with one or the other, but all of the techniques referenced can be performed on either electric or acoustic guitar. A steel-string acoustic guitar sounds great with slide. The size of the body will affect the tone and volume of the guitar, but it is totally a matter of personal preference. The quality of the instrument should not hinder the student, as most of the classic old blues recording like Robert Johnson's were probably done on inexpensive guitars. Although a famous picture shows him playing a Gibson L-1, many sources say he usually played a Stella or Kalamazoo and most likely recorded with one of those guitars. A guitar with a resonator, such as a metal-bodied National or a round-necked Dobro, are often used for slide. In the days before amplification, resonators were popular guitars among bluesmen because they gave them a louder, more nasal tone, which was easier to hear than a regular acoustic guitar. They do sound great with slide, and there are many affordable options out there these days, but it is not necessary to have one to play effective acoustic slide guitar. Electric guitars with humbucicing pickups sound great when playing slide, as the thicker, louder sound of these guitars helps the notes sustain a bit better right out of the gate. Guitars with single-coil pickups will get a much glassier tone but often need the tube compression of an amp turned up a bit, or an overdrive or compression pedal, to add a little more "meat° and sustain so the notes can sing a little longer than a straight clean sound would allow. In this day and age, there are many affordable solid-state and digital amplifiers that provide a wide variety of tones and sound good at a whisper volume. Conventional wisdom dictates that tube-powered amps will deliver the most organic tone and widest dynamic control, but it is entirely up to the player. The music doesn't care one way or the other!
