We did a LOT of that Eastern influenced sort of thing in the '60's. Never thought of using the "bottleneck" method though. (nobody anybody knew said "slide" back then wink ).

Pretty nice approach! thu

Derek T, if one looks at his technique, is definitely the heir to Duane Allman's playing style but has also taken things in a microtonal direction that owes much to the Mid-East & India.

Actually micro-tonality, albeit diff from the Muddy Waters style, is a foundation of Trucks's work overall.
2:35~6:40 / 6:45~9:45 / 9:50~end


1:58-ish & 2:07-8-9

Derek takes Eastern music seriously and even plays sarod sometimes; of course, he's not a formally trained Indian classical musician.

For those who don't know what a "sarod" is, you can check out Ali Akbar Khan or Amjad Ali Khan on You tube, or you might remember it from the Concert for Bangla Desh, where AAK played with Ravi Shankar.

He's has, as he mentioned above, studied w/Khan, although that's a diff discipline than Indian music.
As always, though, the ear of a skilled player is the primary tool.
