lesson 3-04: slides

Sliding is another slurring technique to enhance your lead playing. This lesson is taken from the 1 octave E blues scale. If you don't know this scale checkout the scales section (open scales).

When sliding between notes, make sure you maintain the pressure on the string with your fretting hand. Focus your eyes on the note you are sliding to, NOT from.

When you can play this exercise, practice sliding into note from above the note and below the note, slides can sound cool both ways.
