Thanks Jerome. The Roy Rogers instructional video is excellent, and that's what I originally learned to play slide from.

Skeesix  I"ve searched youtube and google to learned some of the basics for beginners but instead of teaching the  majority seems to forget the novice and can't wait to rip into it and show their skills are sale their products but I do appreciate that they are willing to help.  I would like to say thank you ,this is the only video out of many that actually helped me. The way you teach is just outstanding. Please do more videos are direct me to some videos that teaches like you.

Thanks for the great video - it really helped me get a clean tone out of my slide. Seems I was stuck in the pointless mashing technique before. :)

Hi Arnie, Yes, that is one of my pickups. Thanks. The funny thing is, some CBG's I've spent months perfecting, while this CBG was quickly hacked together in an evening so I could have something to play on, and it still sounds great!

Hey Skeesix, very nice video. I think I am applying too much pressure on the strings. I will try what you suggested. Great job teaching. Thanks
