    Not a huge fan of slide guitar but to me Warren Haynes is about as good as Derek Trucks as a slide player. Bonnie Rait is another decent slide player.

    I made quite a study of slide guitarists a few years ago, Ry Cooder's "Paris Texas" soundtrack is one of the best. Rykodisc also released three great slide compilations, "Almost Everybody Slides," "Everybody Slides Vol.2" and "Slide Crazy." Mucho great music therein, from a lot from people I'd never heard of -- Lenny Carlson, Chris Holzhaus, Tinsley Ellis, Frederic Koella, Cyril Lefebvre, Brij Bhushan Kabra. I ended up making a CD-R of my absolute favorite tracks from these and other sources:
    1. Frederic Koella - Back to New Orleans
    2. Mick Clarke - Cry To Me
    3. Sonny Landreth - Zydeco Shuffle
    4. Bonnie Raitt - Thing Called Love
    5. Joanna Connor - Texas
    6. John Hammond - It Hurts Me Too
    7. Tom Principato - Congo Square
    8. Mac Gayden - Take Your Time
    9. David Lindley - Attar
    10. Joanna Connor - Sweet Baby
    11. Big Daddy Kinsey - Can't Let Go
    12. Roy Rogers - Walkin' Blues
    13. Debbie Davis - The Wrong Man For Me
    14. Chris Cain - Don't Let The Same Dog Bite You Twice
    15. Roy Rogers - Black Cat Bones
    16. Dave Hole - The Bottle
    17. Studebaker John - Talk To Me Babt
    18. Chris Darrow - Fight On

    Lots of great slide players, but Sonny Landreth is THE MAN imho. He manages to be wildly creative while most slide players can't stay away from the traditional slide clichés. Derek Trucks is another guy who has significantly pushed the slide guitar envelope.

    Two candidates that probably wouldn't be mentioned by anybody else here are Trevor Rabin and Lyle Workman. Slide isn't either guy's main thing, but they're both incredibly proficient at it! Check out Trevor's dobro playing on his latest, "Jacaranda;" he's as good as many folks who play the instrument exclusively! And Lyle has some terrific slide moments on his latest, "Harmonic Crusader." Who'dathunk a couple of film score guys would be so great at playing slide?!

    Johnny Winter. Greatest slide player ever. Although he'd surely deny it and point to Robert Johnson.

    I just saw Leo perform that tune in June. He actually flubbed it up! Kinda like the opening to the live album, My Feet Are Smiling. "Boy, I blew that."

    You were respectful, that's all.

    Johnny's in pretty rough shape, physically. But much much better than ten years ago when he was near death. I HIGHLY recommend his recent bio "Raising Cane."

    Nice lipsync -- the singer's voice is just as loud when he's nowhere near the microphone!

    I'm nowhere near the slide aficionado that many others here are, but I was very impressed with Trevor's slide work on Jacaranda.
