Playing in standard tuning makes it very easy to blend your normal playing and slide into one very spicy hybrid style. It surely is the most fun and free way of making music on these wonderful instruments. You can check out my slide playing on YouTube.
I also own one of the largest guitar sites on the Internet - Guitar for Beginners and Beyond which has over 100,000 members and am the author of the bestselling Guitar Instruction Book/DVD PlaneTalk.
Below is a nice endorsement of my slide playing by none other than ex-Eagle Don Felder in an interview at Premier Guitar web site. When asked if anyone other than Duane Allman had inspired him, he answered:
"A few years ago I was up in Calgary doing an interview at a radio station, and the lady who was interviewing me said, “When we’re done, I’ve got to let you hear my brother play slide guitar.” So after the interview she put on this CD and it was just monstrous—the most unbelievable clean technique I’ve ever heard anybody use on slide. His name is Kirk Lorange, and he lives in Australia. He sat in with me about four years ago and I was so impressed with his playing. He has videos on YouTube—you really have to check him out."
