String Bending - Example 1

Rick Graham 210 lessons

Ok, here we have three similar examples which start with a semi-tone bend followed by a tone bend. We will use A minor pentatonic for these examples. We will also be using the third finger for these bends so make sure to impliment the left hand positioning we discussed in the introduction video.

Make sure that you are in control over the string bends and make sure to really use your ear to judge if you have the correct intonation or not.

It's a good idea to play these examples with the target pitches so that you can hear the correct pitch that you need to bend to.
