Well, with some courage, I post this cover of Walking Blues, Eric Clapton version.
It’s been a while since I played slide guitar and I started again to study this song, that in the past I’ve always just noodling around and humming a bit. I don’t own a resonator, so when I play slide I use my old acoustic guitar. For this song I use a F# open tune instead of the regular G, to try to fit better to my voice.
I realize now that playing and singing properly this song (coordinate together both things) is very hard! Well, for me there is the additional twist that I have to sing in a foreign language and focus on pronouncing lyrics as better as I can.
I recorded the song several times and there was always some mistakes of all kinds (singing, words, and of course playing). Eventually I decided to post the very first one that is anyway the best. I know it’s very hard to listen to the umpteenth cover of this song (and there are a ton of excellent renditions around), but if you happen to listen to it, let me know, if you want, what you think.
