It's not as good as the title promises.
apart from MV & EE.
but athletic automation (ex arab on radar) uses a pedal guitar
Hefner - Anne & Bill, Hymn For the Alchohol
by Mazzy star uses pedal steel or I don't know what a pedal steel is. Not sure which. Great song anyway.
Neil Young - Heart of Gold (and loads of others)
You could ignore some of the rubbishy ballads 80s stuff, but his more recent blues slide stuff (especially the 11-CD album blue guitars) is pretty amazing.
with mick taylor credited. surely one of the all time greats at slide guitar.
check out robert randolph and the family band.
by Talking Heads is a lovely use of slide geetarrr
Not sure if this counts but the end of The Moon Is Down by Eits is pretty awesome.
by led zeppelin has awesome slide in. also flying burrito brothers use pedal steel with loads of effects like fuzzbox and stuff which is cool. and in terms of modern artists i'd say jack white is one of the best at slide guitar. this is him doing death letter by son house and its pretty amazing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fM2qhG8mA4
released on Sublime frequencies. It's proper good.
Bollywood Steel Guitar is the most comprehensive collection to date of Steel Guitar pop instrumental music from India. All 21 tracks featured here were Film hits from 1962-1986 and all the masters of the steel guitar sound from the period are represented: Van Shipley, Kazi Aniruddha, S. Hazarasingh, Sunil Ganguly, and Charanjit Singh. An entirely different approach that rocks, swings, and grooves through some of India's most beloved film tunes, the electric steel guitar as lead instrument transforms the already infectious melodies into a multitude of higher sound dimensions. This CD was compiled and carefully selected from rare LPs over several years by Stuart Ellis. Here are some excerpts from his liner notes:
The term "Bollywood" originally referred to the Bombay (now known as Mumbai) Hindi language film industry. Although there are a number of other studios that produce films in other languages, more recently the definition has been expanded in the West to describe pretty much all films produced on the sub-continent. But where in most countries a film's soundtrack would merely be used as a promotional tool for the film, in India, film music has become an industry unto itself with playback singers and dance numbers. The music is just as important as the film and lives on long after the film has left the theaters. These songs are, for the most part, the pop music of India. As with most popular music, other artists sometimes recorded cover versions of these songs. Of these musicians, a small number specialized in instrumental arrangements and created what could be called the elevator music of India. While there were a few who used the harmonium or mouth organ, the most popular instrument used in these instrumental favorites was the steel guitar.
they are really good at imitating vocalisations and mad singing techniques. I must check this out, noice one.
He used a cigarette lighter as a slide!
