This local blues band performed for a get together of teachers from the high school where my wife teaches. I love to listen to the blues and in particular any thing with a slide guitar in it... When this guy pulled out his slide I decided to try to get a close shot of the action...

You must be a fan of the steel guitar used in country and Hawaiian music. I have never seen a slide used in a hand held guitar.

The photos are a little dark but otherwise good.

The first player in front of the first shot looks so intense. I hope he got a chance to enjoy himself.

Selvin - Agreed. They did seem pretty intense during the first couple of songs.


vshc1 - Note the cross hanging from the neck in the 2nd shot and the name of the band "Goin' Home"... They are a blues band, but with a decidely Christian flavor to their original tunes. Very good group of musicians which I hope to see again soon.

Leeroy Parnell, a country singer in the 1990s was famous for playing guitar with that slide on his finger. It brings an interesting sound to an electric guitar- not as "twangy" as a petal steel guitar, but the same kind of increase and decrease in each note.

Nice captures - especially the second.
