Imho....The "best" Duane slide guitar lesson is an axe tuned to open D and the Duane Allman Anthology....Play along with the tunes on that record / CD until a light goes on and you get in touch with his "voice" and style.....

I didnít know he played in D much. I assumed (and we know what that does) that he would play standard or open E. Cool tip. Thanks.

As far as I know you are correct. But open D is the same as open E, just a step lower - so it could work.

Itís a little off topic but Iíve read that Derek Trucks uses E for everything. What Iíve done so far has been standard. Iím trying to get the feel without raising the strings too much. Makes for some clangy practice.

You could go to heavier strings - the extra tension will make it easier to avoid hitting the frets. Of course it will make the strings harder to bend for regular playing. You could also try a lighter slide.
