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.
Hound Dog and Bob Log
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've been on a David Lindley kick lately. Does he count?
*ahem* Jack White

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.
This new guy, Jack Broadbent is pretty good.
