In this lesson we'll look at the slide guitar during the fade out. This is a fun little slide part that is from the Elmore James school of playing slide. Note: when playing this kind of slide style, I really like to play fingerstyle and not with a pick.

We'll start off by playing our 12th fret voicing 6 times then playing the 3rd string and then the 4th string at the 12th fret.

Next, we'll bring in the 1st string and alternate between the 1st and 2nd strings and then jump to the 3rd and 4th strings. again all at the 12th fret.

We then move up to the 17th fret and alternate between the 3rd and 2nd string. Then, to finish, just slide back down to the 12th fret and play the same pattern.
