    How about the singer whose praises you just don’t get?

    Who is your favorite slide Guitarist?

    There are really too many to just pick one but Sonny Landreth has got to be one of my all-time favorites. His playing on this track alone is just fantastic. The lick at the end especially.

    I have never been more sure about this, but I'm also scared to death about it.
