JB’S Ex­am­ple 3 BRIAN MAY- STYLE PRE- BENDS

Guitar Techniques - - Play: String Bending -

Pre- bend­ing a string is quite tricky, as you need to know how much pres­sure is re­quired for the note to be in tune. Brian May is a mas­ter of this, and he of­ten pre- bends a note and then adds fin­ger vi­brato. An­other clas­sic May trick is to bend the string back and forth and keep the pick still, so the string is picked as it is bent from side to side. This con­cept is demon­strated in bars 5 and 6.
