How to Play Electric Slide Guitar The Best String Gauges for Playing Slide Guitar
Hi! My name is John Armstrong with expertvillage .I am a professional guitar instructor and today we will be discussing slide guitar andslide guitar techniques. Another thing I would like to discuss is a string gauge and stringheight because we are not trying to press down into the fret board or the fingerboardof the guitar. The importance of choosing the proper slide is also determined by howthick of a string we are using and how high that sits up off the neck of the guitar. Typicallyspeaking when playing slide guitar, you want a thicker string at least a gauge 10 or higherand you want higher action, a lot higher action than you would try to typically use one playingregular electric guitar doing sweeppicked
arpeggios. The higher the action the better,the thicker the string the better. I would use like I said like a gauge 9 string witha lower action. You are going to have to use an extremely light touch and extremely lightslide in order to get a technique and I still think it is probably going to interfere, youare still getting some unwanted fret noises. So like I said try to use the thickest stringpossible, the highest action possible while still maintaining comfortable playing whenyou are playing your chorded fretted notes.
