Explore a whole range of slide guitar styles and tunings with Rick Payne's 'Beyond The Delta'. The journey begins in the Delta and moves through Texas and Chicago to Hawaii and beyond. The course includes exercises, tips, tunings and tricks that will inspire you to journey even further. Twelve study pieces and relative tuning guides will help you on your way. This is an exciting new course and a must for all slide guitarists who want to travel further.
I picked up my first bottleneck over thirty years ago. I remember being amazed at the strange and wonderful sounds of Robert Johnson. I didn't have a clue how to work with that tube on my finger or how to deal with the cocophany of noises that came off the strings as I struggled to create my first bit of blues slide. Through all my trials there was something about that sound that stuck with me and years later has become my effect of choice - cheap, no wires, just the best!
I'm sure you'll have tried some of the basic techniques already but like me want to explore further into the the world of slide guitar. All the exercises and instrumentals presented in this book are supported by Video links.
