to consciously hear a song with slide guitar?

For me it was November 1970, when the late George Harrison released the single "What is Life?" I could not get the sound out of my head and turned the single white from constantly playing it over and over .......heck, also did that with Billy Preston's "Outta Space"----for you youngsters---BP was/is a keyboardists known for his work with the Beatles, the Stones, and of late, with Eric Clapton

Carlos, Your question got me thinking... For me it was Duane,and through hearing and knowing of him we got into Elmore James, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, etc., etc. That's one more thing I have to be thankful for Duane for. He educated us and heavily influenced our musical tastes.

The first thing that comes to minds is being mesmerized Jimmy Page playing "In My Time of Dying" I thought that was wild stuff.

Me too on the "In My Time of Dying." That was the first time I heard slide and asked the correct person, "how's he doing that?" and got an answer. I was probably about 14 and mostly listened to metal and classic hard rock at the time, so wasn't exposed to much blues (other than early Zeppelin stuff). From about 17 to 20 I went on a huge George Thorogood kick, and he introduced me to tons of stuff.

That is a good queston. I can't remember exactly when or who, but I would have to say some blues guy on the Ed Sullivan show. The first time with Duane is another story altogether.

And Raven is right over there in Dargaville. Go and get some Elmore James and you will hear some riffs that will jump out at you as he is where Duane got a bunch of them from.

Derek and Raven

That would be cool.....a Maori slide guitar specialist playing a tune called "Kiwi Blues" wearing lots and lots of sheepskin as winter approaches down under...."Hi, I am from New Zealand, Elmore James was real good, but he never got to see me play "

Adds new meaning to oceanic blues

Cheers

I think the first time I ever experienced the wonderful sound of the slide was when I was about 16 when I saw the movie "Crossroads", which is an excellent movie by the way. I just wish it would have been somebody besides the Karate Kid playin the strings.

For me it is Free Bird, the jam at the end got me hooked on the song. But after a couple listens the slide part just stuck in side my head.

i'm sure i heard the slide prior to seeing my first slide player but never realized, as a kid in junior high, what the hell was making that sweet sound. it was DUANE ALLMAN 7/71 STEEL PIER IN ATLANTIC CITY. CHANGED MY LIFE.

Carlos and Derek don't laugh but there is a maori cat call Bullfrog Rata does acoustic blues ala Robert Johnson son house etc. then teams up with a band called the swamp diggers for electric stuff, he has a rough and ready slide style nothing on disc though. ( don't know about the sheepskin though. mmmmmmm.....sheep skin )

Raven , you mean the Undergators, don't you?

By the way, what does the band, The Warratahs, sound like? Anything like your favorite Aussie band, The Whitlams?

cheers

I can't say for sure.

It was either Mick Box with Uriah Heep or Geroge Harrison
with the Beatles. Probably George.


The last George Harrison album has some great slide playing on it.
George and Duane are my favorite slide players.

The first slide part I learned was George's Part on
"Crackerbox Palace"

later
John

The first time that really got me into slide playing and blew me away was when I saw Johnny Winter. He pulled out that Firebird and from the first few notes it was over. He's amazing. I didn't get into Duane until a little later but the two of them are my all time favorites. Then from there I got more into Robert Johnson, Charlie Patton and the Delta Blues guys.

When was your first time.....

Well, let's see... I was alone in my room, I was twelve years old... oh, wait... slide guitar- yeah, slide guitar, eh, eh...

Actually, I didn't know anything about slide until I picked up the Dreams boxed set and read the accompanying booklet; which was chock full o' info about Duane's slide work, and I set out to identify what that sounded like. Didn't take long to get the idea, and to start hearing it all over the place. I was particularly blown away when I heard a death metal band incorporating it in their music- lacked the soul of my favorite blues players, but knocked down some of the walls of my ignorance, and my impression that slide was exclusively a blues/rock thing.
I still think Duane was the best ever to play, even with all the great stuff out there now.

I guess when I heard Duane on slide on anything the ABB did. Keep in mind, though, I'm only 17... So, I'm way behind you guys. But I'm getting there...

The solo in Pink Floyd's "Mother" is one that really draws me in, and I feel it. But Melissa and Statesboro Blues really get me. I can't explain, but I know you know what I mean...

Mick Taylor on "Love in Vain" or Johnny Winter "Highway 61 Revisited". Nobody seems to mention Johnny Winter very much around here.

Hi Stratnut

You can have both .....Taylor played on the Dylan tour about 10 or 15 years ago, and IIRC they did Highway 61

It was Statesboro Blues for me -- got me hooked, & I realized a lot of other songs I dug, like Zeppelin's What Is And What Should Never Be, a lot of Johnny Winter's stuff (what about that ending to Mean Town Blues?? Mercy) had slide on it. But Duane was the pioneer for me, and although there were and are many great players since, no one has ever mastered slide playing like him.
