Slide Technique Breakdown and Practice Loop

We're re-issuing one of Corey's most popular lessons with new sheet music, re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Corey: 

In this lesson we learn more about slide technique, such as the placement of the fingers of the slide hand and methods of dampening and muting. I also play a few measures where I'm just singing and playing the bassline so you can loop and practice it.
