In this video you will learn how to play Mick Taylor’s slide guitar solo in the Rolling Stones live, Get Yer Ya Ya’s Out version of Robert Johnson’s ‘Love in Vain’.

This is a fresh edit of the video, to coincide with the tab now being available at my Patreon page,

Slide guitar is an extremely expressive style and Mick Taylor is one of the finest players there is.

Mick’s approach most of the time is to keep the guitar either in regular tuning or, as for Love In Vain, to drop the top E by a tone to D.

That gives a tuning of E A D G B D.

Apart from the sheer fun of playing slide, it’s excellent practice for working on a light and precise touch.

I hope you find it useful.

Cheers, Mark
