Half Step Bends - Explanation (continued)

So I thought it best to go ahead and leave you guys with a few lick examples sort of in the style of Guthrie Govan, Steve Vai, or Shawn Lane.

The first example is sort of an east Indian/middle eastern vibe to it. The key with this lick is to be quick and aggressive.

The second example it a phrase that I use quite often. 

The key with this one is to hammer on to the next note as you are releasing the bend. 

It's very much a legato style line. Make sure to pay close attention to the tab.

Thanks guys!
