To play slide on a Squire do I need a special set-up?<br /> Does the wammie bar really through the guitar out of tune?<br /> Any Ideas on great electric slide lessons?

For slide guitar you need to get the actionsraised.<br /> Generally speaking yes a whammy bar can put the guitar out of tune but with quality parts and proper set up there should not be an issue.<br /> For lessons look on You Tube

Since this isn't a gear review, this topic probably belongs in the "Miscellaneous..." or the "Guitar Mods...." section. I'm sure it would get much more activity there.<br /> <br />

You could always get a lap steel for slide and use your Squire for normal fretted play.
