Blues Cruise - Exercise 2 Blues Cruise - Exercise 4

In exercise 3, we're going to start things out by playing a smooth A minor arpeggio. I'd recommend practicing this arpeggio by itself before moving on to the rest of the exercise.

In bar 11, we'll be playing some nice bends on the 17th fret. As it indicates in the tablature, we'll be bending up a half step, so make sure your bends reach the exact pitch of the 18th fret.

At the end of bar 11, look out for that quick sweep on the G, B, and High E strings. Make sure you maintain smooth downward and upward motions with your pick.
