Going To Brownsville > Slide Melody

In this lesson we will discuss how to play the slide riffs in the song. It is important to keep a light touch on the strings and to keep you finger close together on your sliding hand. If you need more tips on playing slide, I did a slide fundamentals video here on Sonic Junction that may help you. Keep in mind that a large part of playing slide is dampening the strings with your palm to control the noise and isolate strings. Take your time with the slide and it will pay off later.

Have fun!
