Roger McLay  Acoustic and Slide Blues

Roger (aka  Mr Mudslide) is a solo performer with a lifelong interest in blues music.  These days he contributes to keeping the blues alive by focussing on traditional finger-style acoustic and resonator slide guitar.

It is not unknown for Mr Mudslide to accompany himself with rack harmonica on occasion.

He often performs on instruments he has built himself, performing regularly at smaller venues and various events around the  Waikato. 

Mr Mudslide favours open tuning when playing slide and draws his repertoire mainly from songs by many of the early blues masters. However he does perform acoustic interpretations of certain contemporary blues classics as well as a handful of originals for good measure.
