greetings:

Although it isn't forefront in his usual outlet of music, Frankie Hannon plays some mean
acoustic slide.

Derek and Warren are 2 of the best in my view.

Also, there are several bluegrass Dobro players who tear it up in a big way, the most notable being Jerry Douglass. Another to look for is Rob Ickes with Blue Highway.

If David Lindley is still playing that lap slide of his he is right up there with the best.

Its kinda sad to think of how good Duane and Lowell George would be with the electric slide guitar if they were still around.

Particularly Duane.

I like Dickey Bett's style on slide as well. He doesnt really have the chops of Warren or Derek or many other slide players, but that doesnt necessarily mean one isnt good.

Dickey playes within himself and he has a very distictive style. I hear lots of players trying to play slide beyond their ability and its usually a mess to listen to.

Agree with Haynes, Landreth, and Pearson, no question.

I think Hound Dog Taylor died about 20 years ago (and a great loss it was).

Eric Sardinas? I find Eric entertaining, but he's not up to the level of some of the other names on this thread. He's kind of "Thorogood-style," in my view. Basic technique, lots of energy, some catchy tunes. His connections with Johnny Winter and Hubert Sumlin have given him a nice boost.

I also like Dickey's slide playing. Not a wizard perhaps, but his slide playing always "works."

No one has mentioned Ry Cooder - one of the best.

In my opinion the best out there right now seem to be Derek and Landreth but of course I haven't heard everybody. I may be biased but I don't think anyone can touch Derek right now. His tone, phrasing, touch, attack and the fact he's playing styles that no one ever thought a slide player could do so well is astounding...and the fact he's still in his twenties is amazing.

Paul Barrere of Little Feat. He picked up the slack after the death of Lowell George. He's an under-rated player in an under-rated band.

Sonny--for sure, tuna.

I'm in the process of reconsidering the "Guilded"/"Gilded" question! I don't know that they have slide, but how about that band Guilded by Vices?

Muletrane and Droogie, Hound Dog Taylor died in 1975, it was. He was pretty rough, but if you're in the right mood, his music's a blast!

http://www.keno.org/hound_dog_taylor/hdhomepage.htm
http://www.alligator.com/artists/bio.cfm?ArtistID=001

Li'l Ed Williams, leader of Li'l Ed & the Blues Imperials, has been said to have inherited that Chicago houserockin' slide thing, since he's the nephew of the late slider J.B. Hutto, plays in the Hound Dog style, and gives a rollickin' stage show. I haven't been too impressed, though; his voice and playing and whole thing are just very coarse--I don't mean vulgar but way too sloppy and unpolished.

On the other end of the Chicago blues spectrum, Fruteland Jackson is pretty good in the traditional acoustic blues vein. He plays clubs quite a bit and has a good thing going with the Blues in the Schools program. He's not really trying to be innovative, but he's not just a copycat, either, and he was nominated last time for a Handy award for best acoustic album.

And in case his name sounds too phony, it's actually his real name--Fruteland! I axed him about this, and he said he was named this by his grandfather. What about that spelling? Well, Grandpa wasn't too good a speller!

Fruteland has a pretty interesting website, which I hadn't seen like this until now:

Can we include Robert Randolph on this list? I know he plays pedal steel, but damn if he doesn't blow my head off everytime I see or hear him. I'm not a religious man, but whenever I hear RR play, I think that there has to be a higher power somewhere inspiring him to do what he does. I also know that Warren and Derek (and a lot of other players, including Clapton) have a lot of respect for him.

Tony Furtado. I'm surprised that I have never seen his name mentioned before on this forum. He was the opener at a show I saw in Nashville this past March. I had heard OF him, but was not familiar with any of his music. 30 seconds into the show he already had my eyebrows raised. An amazing 45 minutes of music that ended way too soon. He played an all acoustic show staying with the theme of the headliner. Just Tony & his guitar(and banjo)- no backing band to lean on. I ended up buying one of his CD's and meeting him in the lobby after his set. Very nice guy who actually worked the merchandise table selling his CD's & some homemade bottleneck slides that he cut and polished from wine bottles. Most of his playing was fingerstyle with picks and he played a couple of banjo tunes. In fact, he was a 2 time national banjo champion. His slide playing is similar to Sonny's in that he mixes slide fills in with his fretted notes. The CD I bought is called American Gypsy and I highly recommend it. It has alot of Americana/bluegrass influences with some celtic inspired tunes also. From the reviews i've read, some of his other CD's have different sounds and influences. In one editorial review he was being compared to Bela Fleck & Ry Cooder. That's pretty tall company. Any one else seen this guy or have any of his music?

Go check out Sonny Landreth, I like him a lot. Also, the one guitarist from the Radiators is very good on the slide, Camile Badouin can tear it up.
