That Pedal Show Special – Slide Guitar With Ariel Posen

Published on Nov 4, 2016

In this episode Daniel and Mick welcome our friend and all-round awesome guitar player, Ariel Posen, to the show. Ariel is from Canada and plays in one of our favourite bands, The Brothers Landreth (among many other gigs, sessions, tours and projects). And he’s just moved to Ireland.
We wanted to do something on slide guitar and as neither of us play slide, this was just the perfect opportunity…

During the video we discuss effects including overdrive, compression, tremolo, reverb and delay as they relate to slide tones and approaches. It’s not a lesson or a manifesto on the art of slide, more a discussion with a few laughs along the way.
