JW’S EXAMPLE 3 TRA CK 31
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).
