In this lesson, I want to show you a standard tuning slide guitar lick in the style of Warren Haynes. This is the first lesson where I use the 335 for playing standard tuning slide.
This guitar has not been setup for slide. The action is pretty low and I’m using a set of .010’s for strings.
It is harder to play like this, but not impossible. You really have to keep a light touch, while pressing the slide gently against the strings.
To get the tone for this lesson, the amp is a 1966 Fender Vibrolux on 6 with a Weber Mini Mass. For pedals I used a Fulltone OCD and a VL Effects Vintage Fat Boost pedal. Having them both on at the same time gives a real nice, fat overdrive like Warren always uses. The reverb on the amp was set to 4 which also contributes to the tone.
