My first slide guitar

my new project: slide / bottleneck guitar, open tuning, guitar instrumentals …

it takes a worried man, to sing a worried song …

P.S.:
there were a school shooting, a cruel massacre in Erfurt, Germany, and during the funeral one musician performed “Amazing Grace” – we all were very near to tears…

  1. Now, I’m woefully ignorant, so bear with me–but hearing “slide”, makes me think of Hawaiian guitar music (“slide” was the term referenced). I imagine you’re familiar–do you play any of that, Hawaiian “folk” songs?

    • sorry, it’s not Spanish Flamenco guitar – maybe that’s the sound you grew up with? Nevertheless, I got my best guitar lessons by Cristina Rico, Valencia, Spain: I’v learned by her how to focus, to concentrate, to meditate. She played mostly in the night, eyes closed, working for her CD….

    Thanks Frizz, your Slide – Worried – Man 72 is poetry to the ears. Hopefully, the worry will pass and the poetic sounds will represent a time passed.

    Awful to hear about the school shooting in Erfurt.
