Slide tunes in open D or G

Recommended Posts

trying to find some new tunes to play and wondered what your favorite tunes were.

I do a lot of old robert Johnson and elmore james stuff interspersed with ry cooder for a more modern taste, but want to shake my set list up a bit so if anyone has any suggestions let me know

check out anything by duane allman, warren haynes sonny landreth, david lindey... and the list goes on. as far as songs go, staesboro blues is a good one to keep ya busy and pulling out your hair, for me anyway

I'm sure if you google something like 'open G tabs' or something you'd get lots.

Other slide players using open tunings I forgot to mention are Ben Harper and Bob Broznan - also a lot of slack key/Hawaiain is in open tunings. There must be loads of others, but I'm no expert on the subject.

Bob Broznan has his own forum where you can ask him about anything pretty much - I came across it once, and he really does reply to questions.
