In this free guitar lesson, I’m going to show you how to play slide guitar licks in Open E Tuning. Dickey Betts used this kind of lick a lot and so did Duane Allman. In fact you will hear this lick in all types of old blues as well. From Muddy Waters to Robert Johnson and Derek Trucks, this slide guitar lick is a must know if you want to improve your slide guitar prowess in open e tuning. Tuning from low to high is EBEG#BE.

Once again this lesson is in open E Tuning. Be sure to raise the action a bit when playing slide guitar to get a clean sound without fretting out. The rhythm aspect used in the lesson is one you will hear quite often in Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters tunes.
