String Bending - Example 4

Rick Graham 210 lessons

In this example we will be moving sequentially through the scale of A minor pentatonic but keeping it all within the confines of one string: the g string. Due to the nature of the pentatonic scale, we will be required to use a mixture of whole tone bends and minor third bends as discussed in the previous lesson.

What you can also do is use each respective finger to perform the bends i.e. index, middle, ring, little, so that you give your left hand a vigourous workout. You will probably find that some fingers are less cooperative than other so make sure that you spend more time working on the weaker fingers.

This example includes the target pitch just before you play it so keep that pitch in you mind so that you can maintain accuracy.
