    Hey everyone,

    I'm looking to get into slide guitar. Could anyone reading this thread state their favourite slide guitar album and the tunings used on the album?

    Thanks in advance.

    Second Winter by Johnny Winter. Not all slide, but what there is smokes! The record that started me playing, more than 40 years ago. I remember Highway 61 just blew me away, I'd never heard anything remotely like that before. Try Ry Cooder, Little Feat, Sonny Landreth.....

    Oh I think Johnny Winter used open A if memory serves?

    Ry Cooder & Vm bhatt - a meeting by the river. (This is not for everyone, transcendental slide mastery)

    No idea about the tunings.

    Go on You tube , watch and listen .

    Here's a sample ...........

    These two fellas , Jim Suhler and Jason Elmore are playing in open G.......
