The Sky Is Crying

King of the Slide Guitar, Elmore James had his first hit with “Dust my Broom” in 1952, opening with his fantastic, legendary slide guitar riff that inspired a raft of guitarists to pick up a slide.

There’s a lot more to the guy than that riff though. From a couple of great favourites i’m going to have to pick “The Sky Is Crying”.

That said, I think there’s plenty more to choose from. I think i’ll save those for another day.
