You can use standard tuning but most use Open D or Open G tuning. I tinker with my own Open D minor tuning. To each his own, really. A few examples:

My favorite slide song, Feeling Bad Blues by Ry Cooder uses Open D. Use this when you want a sad, dark feel.


Stevie Ray Vaughan used standard tuning and you'd use this if you want to sound really muddy and messy - but you have to be a better player than I to pull it off!


Open G makes for the happy, upbeat Chicago style. I believe that Foghat used this in Sweet Home Chicago but it could have been standard as well.


Duane Allman played the slide guitar on the Layla album and I believe he used Open D throughout -- so it's not so much the tuning as it is the incredible talent that Duane had.

I'm not sure about The Stones but Open D and Open G are a safe bet.

Or the dildo one. Last time I saw them it was a free show at a motorcycle dealership. Hot as hell outside and audience wasn't paying that much attention but still rocked and did good effort. And were super nice signing albums and just talking with folks after the show and seemed appreciative just to be able to live the rock-n-roll life a bit.





Too bad his daughter turned out to be a commie:
