In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of navigating the fretboard and more when playing slide guitar in standard tuning. You should have already gone through the Slide Techniques Course before starting this Course.

Slide guitar is a unique and expressive style that involves using a slide to glide over the strings, creating a smooth and fluid sound. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced musician, this course will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to get started with playing blues slide guitar.

I played slide in standard tuning for about 10 years before ever using open tunings. In my opinion, standard tuning is the most difficult to learn due to the amount of muting you must do. In a way it’s kind of good, because if you can play slide in standard tuning, then you will probably do really well in open tunings because of the technique that you have to develop.

There are however some key concepts and places on the fretboard that can that make things much easier when playing slide in standard tuning. With a little “Re Working” of your thinking slide in standard tuning doesn’t have to be that hard.
