Does Kevin Brown still do his bottleneck one day seminar. It will get you playing bottleneck. Worked for me.

It was 75 quid. It was held at the same room in the Royal Geographical Society Rooms in Bath, the same room Charles Darwin delivered his Origin of the Species paper.

I bought the cheapest guitar I could off ebay. When I got there - the local music shop set it up perfectly to play slide. There was a stall selling beautiful glass slides, made by a guy called Ian MacWee. Diamond Slides.

There were two seminars with Kevin and another Lancashire lad, both wonderful players. They were both good teachers, and really approachable. There was a buffet lunch with tea and coffee thrown in, and a concert with both experts plaing that night. The climax I remember was Robert Johson's travelling Riverside Blues.

I just came home back to Nottingham, full of excitement , I sat down and wrote three full pages of all the things I'd learned, before I forgot a single thing.
