There’s something special about the sound of slide guitar.

I had the honor and privilege to produce slide guitar loops with the great, Doug Wamble. If you don’t know who Doug is, odds are you’ve probably already heard is incredible guitar playing. He’s played with a huge range of people including Wynton Marsalis, The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Nora Jones, Brandford Marsalis and even Courtney Fucking Love. That’s also his guitar playing that you hear on all of the awesome Ken Burns documentaries.
