Tim Williams

This is a very interesting video. It covers some different territory and unique approach to slide playing and some general techniques of guitar playing as well. I liked the easy going style of Tim and his more folk like approach to playing. The video includes the following:

  • G and D Tuning
  • The constant and alternating bass thumb techniques
  • Cool Turnarounds
  • Funky Right Hand techniques
  • Soloing in Open G Tuning
  • Slide Guitar Techniques
  • Ragtime – Jugband Guitar Styles
  • Dixieland Major/Minor moves
  • Blue 3rds
  • Country Blues Techniques
  • Lots of comparisons and hints to the styles of the great acoustic blues players
  • Double Stops

I would grant this a thumbs up, with a minor hesitation, because Tim does not do a great job explaining his licks so a beginner could understand them. That said it it still a good slide guitar instructional course.
