The third title in Backbeat Books' new Fretmaster series, Slide Guitar: Know the Players, Play the Music teaches both the history and technique of slide guitar's masters, from Robert Johnson, Son House, and Sol Hoopii through George Harrison, Duane Allman, Ry Cooder, and Leo Kottke. Aspiring slide guitarists will appreciate the book's recommendations on choosing and using different types of slides. Spiral-bound to conveniently lay flat on music stands, this book includes a play-along CD featuring all the exercises plus backing tracks in blues, country, and rock styles for perfect practice sessions.
