Saw a picture of Warren in a signature using the Mic-stand as sliding device for his guitar.

Saw Alvin Lee (former Ten Years After) last week, doing the same (as well as sliding with his mounth-harp (harmonica) and tapping his guitarstrings with a drum-stick).

Who started this? One of these 2, or is the just quite normal and adopted by everyone?

I saw Alvin Lee with Ten Years After do this back in 1970.

It actually was the cat in the Lawrence Welk Orchestra with the big guitar that they made sit in back with his volume knob on 1, well, Lawrence drank a little too much bubbly that day and during break, he let that dude turn it up to 10 and let him just wail away, mike stand and all......

I know Hendrix did it at the Monterey Pop (June 1967) but my guess would be that it started somewhere on the chittlin' circuit or in the Miss juke joints.

McGinnis and Dewar left 1971, to be replaced by Ronnie Leahy and Steve Thompson. The tragic death of Les Harvey ( electrocuted by a live microphone on stage at Swansea's Top Rank Suite in May 1972) almost led to the breakup of the band. After trying Peter Green, the band brought in ex-Thunderclap Newman prodigy Jimmy McCulloch as lead guitarist.

If I had to guess I'd say TBone Walker.

Very interesting ... but what does it have to do with using a mic stand as a slide, Jon?

When I read a story about this in paper format in 1972, the article stated " mic stand" instead of the word microphone. The story went as far as to say that the guitar had become welded to the mic stand. Ifn one were to attempt this mic stand /slide routine , make sure all grounds have been tested and confirmed OK. Sorry for the bit of un-information on the origianl post Chasinater.

T-Bone Walker is a pretty good guess. Hendrix also got a lot of his "showmanship" routine from Johnny "Guitar" Watson, that might be another possibility.

It's probably safe to say that Jimi popularized it, as he did so many other guitar tricks.

If Jimmy Page did it then for sure someone did it before him.



Sorry, I couldn't resist.

No problemo Jon. Hey I enjoyed your post anyway. I loved Jimmy McCulloch's playing with Wings. They immediately started sucking after he left the group. Coincidence? I think not. Supposedly "Junior's Farm" is about Jimmy or his place.

Hai, it's not a grounding problem that led to his death, but a difference in potential. It's actually the neutral legs that need to be bonded together to prevent that from happening. I've done many portable power jobs where I could not get a ground, or a suffiient ground, but had no problems because I made sure that the loads were balanced from leg to leg and the neutrals legs were all tied together. I learned this from my time with Motion Pictures and Events out of Wilmington.

I don't think I'd ever try the mic stand slide routine, but I do every once in a while use the Amalfitano Bar Stool Slide.

Sh*t....You beat me to it. That's what I was going to say. At least it's what I read in sixth grade history class.

Slide with Mic-stand - Who started??

I think there's a BIG difference in using the mic stand to actually play slide guitar and just dragging it across the strings for effect.

Off topic, but have you seen that video where Jimmy Page is in a dark bar and using a Heineken bottle as a slide? Pretty good Page.
