Great blues slide guitar tune. Elmore James noted as the King of the Slide Guitar is a great player to study if you are looking to learn how to play slide. Song is played in open D tuning.
Relatively easy guitar part using palm muted power chords through the verses and just 3 easy open chords in the chorus. C, G, and D open chords are all that is needed. The slide solo by Mike Campbell is an easy one in the realm of slide guitar. Great one to learn if you are just starting out on slide.
