    Duane, Lowell, Ry, Derek for sure. Don't forget EC - "Motherless Children" is phenomenal!

    I've got tickets to se Ry Cooder in Amsterdam soon. Not seen him live since early 80's in London with the Bop Till You Drop line-up.

    He's my favourite slide player throughout all the eras he's played - Rising Sons, Beefheart/Safe as Milk, Paris Texas soundtrack, Memo to Turner/Stones, early acoustic solo material like Boomers Story........... I could go on - great collaborations and solo work since.

    Guys, c’mon. Elmore James. He’s the “Elmore James” of slide guitar. But if you haven’t seen this YouTube video of a quick supro demo by Matt Smith, please take 1:40 out of your day to check it out. You’ll be happy that you did!

    I love that raspy metal slide. A lot of people always talk about trying to mimic a human voice and getting the warm Derek trucks sort of creamy humbucky slide sound. But I love it when someone has metal on metal through a single coil and it doesn’t sound anything like a human, just a great slide player.

    Ry Cooder. His playing on John Hiatt’s “Lipstick Sunset” gets to me every time.
