Doug Wamble Slide Guitar Collection
by The Loop Loft
To produce our latest Loop Loft Artist Series release, we enlisted the talent of acclaimed guitarist, Doug Wamble (Wynton Marsalis, Norah Jones, Madeleine Peyroux, Branford Marsalis). Recorded over the course of several days in NYC on Wamble's signature Amistar resonator guitar
, this collection of tracks covers a vast range of styles, from traditional Delta blues, to front porch folk, to singer-songwriter strumming, to dirty and distorted rock. The result? One of the most eclectic and inspiring loop libraries we've ever released - The Doug Wamble Slide Guitar Collection.
During the recording process for this collection, we asked Doug about his approach to slide guitar playing:
I am very influenced by the Delta blues slide guitar tradition, from Robert Johnson and Son House to Rev. Gary Davis and Mississippi Fred McDowell, and also by the sacred steel guitar tradition that most people know through Derek Trucks and Robert Randolph. But the greatest of them all, in my honest opinion, is Aubrey Ghent. So I pull from those things, as well as the great Chris Whitley's approach, and kind of fuse that on to my jazz background.
Weighing in at a hefty 585 MB (with 385 individual guitar loops) The Doug Wamble Slide Guitar Collection is organized into six main sessions, each recorded in a different key and tempo, providing a vast library of both lead and rhythm tracks. Whether you're a pop musician seeking the unique tone and timbre of a resonator guitar (along with Wamble's incredible playing), scoring a film and looking for authentic slide guitar to set the scene, or searching for distinct acoustic elements to mix into your electronic compositions, this collection will supply you with the highest quality slide guitar loops available anywhere.

About Doug Wamble
"A one-man compendium of avant-Americana." - The New Yorker
"...Mr. Wamble, the guitarist who has been heard with Wynton Marsalis, Cassandra Wilson and Steven Bernstein's Millenial Territory Orchestra, blends…country, blues, gospel and soul." - The New York Times
As a child of Memphis, TN, Doug Wamble has always been surrounded by a vast musical and cultural landscape. From listening to his mother play piano in their Baptist church to his grandfather singing cowboy songs, murder ballads and old time gospel favorites while strumming his guitar, Doug has been immersed in music for his entire life.
After completing two music degrees, Doug decided to head to New York to seek a career as a guitarist and composer. Appearing on bandstands and recordings with such jazz greats as Wynton Marsalis, Cassandra Wilson and Branford Marsalis, and pop artists such as Norah Jones, Madeleine Peyroux and Courtney Love, Doug was making a name for himself as a guitarist when he was signed to Marsalis Music/Universal Records, started by Branford Marsalis. Doug released two critically acclaimed records Country Libations, and Bluestate, which focused not only on his guitar abilities, but on his compositions and soulful vocals. Touring all over the world, Doug has performed as a bandleader at festivals and clubs, and opened for acts such as Harry Connick Jr., Diana Krall, Madeleine Peyroux, Branford Marsalis, and the Indigo Girls. As a composer, Doug has been commissioned by the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Chamber Music America and has recently composed portions of the original scores for renowned documentary filmmaker Ken Burns on his films "The Tenth Inning" and "Prohibition."
