Bottleneck Secrets

Like all great blues players, John Mooney derives mojo from his fingers, not his gear. Mooney can fill a hall with soulful slide sounds, whether he’s fronting a band with a Strat cranked through a Super Reverb, or doing a solo set on an unmiked National resonator. Here, Mooney shares some cool slide tips and hot riffs. But before you get started, Mooney has a simple way to avoid the common problem of slide slippage. “I superglue a piece of cork to the inside of my slide so it stops halfway up my pinky and stays there,” says Mooney. This lesson includes Power Tab and is featured on the following CD compilations: BLUES U, ACOUSTIC U, TWANG U.
