: I know he uses a lot of slides, but how does he get the wavy sound where you can hear the individual notes?

I think you mean the trills (AKA shakes, head shakes, etc.). This is done by placing your mouth over a hole and rapidly shaking your head between it and the next hole. It's difficult at first; but with practise, it can become an effective technique.
