For my second podcast, I decided to go with a slide guitar theme, piecing together a few live tracks featuring some of my favorite players of fretless slide guitars like the lap steel, Weissenborn, and straight-up 6-string electric guitar. Enjoy!

Total running time: 40:43

By the way, if you like the theme of this podcast, but are disappointed that your favorite guitarist didn’t make the cut, it is likely that I just don’t have a good quality recording, don’t know about them, or didn’t want it to be too long. If that’s the case, feel free to make a suggestion. Just be sure to send me a link or a copy, and I’ll do my best to include it on a version II of the same theme.
