JB’S EX­AM­PLE 6

JIMI HEN­DRIX- STYLE BEND­ING

Guitar Techniques - - Play: String Bending -

This ex­am­ple demon­strates Jimi’s sig­na­ture tech­nique of catch­ing the third string while bend­ing the sec­ond string up. Take a look at bars 7 and 8 and, as you bend the sec­ond string, let the third string go un­der your bend­ing fin­ger as it moves across the fret­board. If you pick the third string, a bluesy clash will sound out for a mo­ment. With a lit­tle prac­tice, it’s easy to get some very Hen­drix- like re­sults.
