3 Acoustic Slide Riffs You Must Know - Part 1

Updated: Feb 11

Son House was a Pre-WWII guitarist that played a steel-bodied resonator. He was a huge influence on both Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters, and his style is still a huge influence on guitarists to this day.


"Preachin' Blues" is one of his better known songs and is about the narrators struggle between choosing the life of a preacher and the life of an itinerant bluesman. Ultimately Son House chose the life of a bluesman, and us slide guitarist couldn't be more thankful for the result.
