Best Slide Guitarists

Recommended Posts

I'm a huge fan of slide guitar. I'm hoping that this post will acquaint me with some new slide guitarists.

IMO, the following slide guitarists are two of the best in the business.

A World Away - Sonny Landreth

Mercury Blues - David Lindley

This guy is amazing. He is one of the most versatile musicians I've ever seen. He plays almost every stringed instrument imaginable including, steel guitar, banjo, fiddle, bouzouki, cittern, mandolin, upright bass and zither. And he plays them very well.

The steel guitar shines on Mercury Blues!

My first thought regarding slide guitar was Lynryd Skynryd's Free Bird.

Joe Walsh plays a mean slide and so does Joe Perry and Bonnie Raitt.

There are many great slide guitarists but Billy Gibbons, I think, was born with a slide!

Just Got Paid ~ ZZTOP

Great video of Billy Gibbons. I've long admired his guitar work, Marcus, but I didn't realize he was such an accomplished slide guitarist. :guitar:
