PRE- BENDS

Guitar Techniques - - Play: String Bending -

This idea show­cases the re­mark­ably sim­ple but mu­si­cally ef­fec­tive tech­nique of silently bend­ing the string first, be­fore strik­ing each note. Once you’re in place, you play the note bent and then re­lease the bend

3 to cre­ate a bend that de­scends. The in­to­na­tion is ar­guably less crit­i­cal here, depend­ing on how long you al­low your ini­tial tar­get pitch to sound. These ideas are de­rived from A Do­rian ( A B C D E F# G).
