Sorry, I forgot my other question: What kind of overdrive/distortion pedal would give me a nice dirty (yet articulate) slide tone? My Mesa has two basic sounds: really clean, and really friggin dirty, not much in between unless I use drastically different gutiars and mess with my guitar's volume knobs. So I'd like something milder.
The BBE Green Screamer is a Ts-808 clone, but a lot more transparent. gives you just that tiny touch of gain more. i recommend it.

I've been getting into slide recently, especially a lot of white stripes stuff. at the moment i've been sliding in open A (started off with seven nation army, but then went to stuff like little bird and suzy lee). but yeah, i like sliding. the only thing is, when i use a slide, i like to make it obvious that i'm using a slide. duane allman and jeff beck are really good at making it sound like they're not using a slide - i'm not into that. i'm into 'hey guys, i'm using a slide, HEAR ME SLIIIIIDE". :haha:

Hey guys, first post in this group. I joined awhile back cuz I love the blues and really love the sound of slide guitar, but I have several questions:

1. Are there any lessons online (video or written) on some proper slide techniques? I'm not completely satisfied with how my slide playing sounds.
2. What are some simple songs that involve slide: blues, rock, etc?
3. Is there a specific height I need the action on my guitar at to have slide sound good?
4. What are some good guitars that would work as dedicated slide guitars? I'd like to get one to strictly dedicate to slide playing.
5. Not really a question, but more of a discussion topic: What tunings do you guys prefer? I've only done slide in Drop D, Open D major and Open C Major, but I know there are a ton of tunings out there, especially tunings that are more slide oriented.

Thanks for reading my long post :p
- Dan
