Slides is a free video lesson by Peter Vogl that will teach you an essential guitar technique. You will learn how to play a basic slide and then several variations. The most common slide is moving the fingered note up one fret of the guitar while the note is still playing. Peter will also cover slides that move down a fret, up and down two frets, and sliding notes on two strings at once. It's important to keep a constant pressure on the string throughout the slide to maintain volume. Below you will find the video and tab for this lesson. To learn more about slides, hammer ons, and pull offs check out our Beginning Techniques premium lesson.

Here are the tabs for each of our slide examples
