    The Acoustic Slide Guitar course web page is very complete and thorough and the two videos are quite impressive. My question is: Is there any downside to using the course material with as hollow body electric? I know the course says "Acoustic", but I don't know of any reason it can only be used with an acoustic. Does anyone have input on this before I spring for the download?
    Thanks

    This course teaches basic slide techniques in standard and open tunings. The song examples are more in the style of acoustic blues but your hollow body will work fine.

    The only downside I can see is that you might find yourself gassing for another guitar. [smiley=wink.gif]

    Thanks Terry. I couldn't think of a reason it would not work, but thought I would ask. As for want of yet another guitar, that is a constant urge. If I bring in another, I would have to smuggle it past the wife. She thinks one more would be just about five too many.
