25 early examples of slide guitar playing in Country and Hillbilly music in the 1930’s and 40’s. The Hawaiian guitar sounds were recreated by Country and Blues players in many different ways, the most popular being the ‘sliding’ of a broken off bottle neck and later as an almost compulsory element in every country and western band came the use of the pedal steel guitar. Among the exponents of the early forms of the art or bandleaders who incorporated the instrument are, Jimmie Davis, Cliff Carlisle, The Carter Family and Darby & Tarlton.
