In this Course I want to show you what I have learned about playing slide guitar in Open E Tuning like Duane Allman. His style has always been my favorite when I started trying to learn about slide nearly 23 years ago. Throughout the years I’ve learned a lot about his playing style and after lots of trial and error I think I have learned a few things about what makes his slide style so special.
There are so many guitar players out there these days that to stand out you really have to be a little different. There are SRV, Clapton, and BB King clones everywhere you turn. If you play Duane Allman slide guitar though you will simply have many more options to play with others as there are not nearly as many who are playing this style.
You’ll stand out in jam sessions as you will most likely be the only slide player and you’ll have a better chance at joining a band as well. I know I did. When I started playing slide out lots of people would call me up and ask me to play live with them.
In addition to adding slide guitar as a new technique in your arsenal, your regular guitar playing will become much better. Since you have can’t fly up and down a scale, everything you play on slide has to be melodic which in turn will make your phrasing when playing standard guitar better as well.
So if you’re looking to broaden you’re skills, learning slide guitar will simply give you a better chance of making music with lots more people. Make a commitment today to start something new in 2018 and if you go through the lessons and practice, I can guarantee you that one year from now you will be a totally different guitar player.

The Solos You Will Learn
In 2008 Gibson recognized me as an expert for teaching the Duane Allman slide guitar style. 10 years later I think I have learned quite a deal more about his playing since then and that’s the info I have put into this course.
