Guitar Solo Slide

The guitar solo slide is one of the easiest guitar solo techniques to learn and use. In this lessons, you can learn exactly how to play a slide and use it in a solo.

To slide means simply that--you slide from one note to the other without picking the 2nd note. There are some things to remember that will make your slide more effective:

**Your whole left hand must move as you slide.

**Be sure to keep pressure on the string with your left hand. A bit of experimenting will tell you the right amount of pressure. Too much will cause your finger not to glide easily and too little will fail to produce a sound.

**Let the 1st note fully sound before sliding to the 2nd note. Don't rush!

Here is an example of slides that could be used in the "G" pentatonic minor scale:

Click on the right arrow of the player to hear it.

Practice this scale until you can play it at a fast tempo while keeping it even and precise. You will probably find little pieces of it sneaking into your solo licks!

Here is an excerpt from the guitar solo in "Don't Wanna Stop" (Ozzie). I slowed it way down so you could hear the slides clearly.

Click on the right arrow of the player to hear it.

That should be enough to get you started sliding! Have fun and remember to check out the other guitar solo lessons.
