George Michael - Faith

What is the instrument being played at minute 02:58 in this video: George Michael - Faith (Official Video) - YouTube

Is it guitar? How do you play that?

@apfel Justin has a great lesson on this song, it doesn’t cover the bit you’re asking about though. What it is is a slide. Check out Dave Price on YouTube, his lesson on the solo in Faith. The demo he plays at the beginning has that slide in it. (I make no recommendation on him, that’s the only tutorial I’ve ever watched by him, when I was looking for the solo in that song one day.)

Welcome to the community - enjoy your guitar journey :slightly_smiling_face:
