    You are welcome! By the way, he mentions the open G tuning, but actually plays in open A. There is quite a bit of information out there on his technique and his guitar setup. For instance, he used heavy flatwound jazz strings.

    A couple of years ago I made an attempt to recreate his guitar.

    Derek Trucks is easily my favorite slide player. He also ranks in my top 5 guitarists regardless of style.

    Does steel guitar count as "slide?" Are we talking bottleneck underarm slide, or calling lap, Dobro and console steel slide?

    Sticking with underarm slide:

    Ry Cooder
    Dereck Trucks
    Sonny Landreth
    Jack Pearson
    Duane Allman
    Arlen Roth
    Leroy Parnell

    Everyone who slides something on the strings gets my attention.
    I love 'em all, I mean it. I'll be back posting here, for now, a great clip by Bukka!!

    I like what Chris Rea and Mike Campbell do with a slide, but Dereck Trucks is my favorite. He is in a class by himself.

    Then there is this guy.... surprised nobody has mentioned him.

    Hound Dog Taylor and Muddy Waters, for their "take no prisoners" approach to it.

    Robert Nighthawk. Big influence on Muddy and Earl Hooker.

    J.B. Hutto is another great one in the Elmore James style.
