What can I say about Joe Walsh, he’s staple on the classic rock stations to this day. His work with the James Gang and then the Eagles is legendary, and his solo career has spanned many years and still going strong. His slide guitar playing is instantly recognisable and his long slow sustained runs are really sweet. I overlooked this video instructional for a long time, but one of my newsletter readers suggested it, and I am glad I bought it.
This is a very interesting slide guitar instructional video. It covers a lot of regular guitar as well. Joe is a funny guy and his humor is really over the top.
It’s got a couple of performances as well. His approach is really different, he makes it look easy, but the techniques he shares will help anyone who gives them a chance.
He also goes over some technical aspects of setting up your guitar, which are really valuable and will get your axe in proper intonation.
