JW’S Example 7 DOUBLE- STOP BENDS
Double- stop bends mean bending two notes at once. However, the varying tensions of the strings means that bending equal distances can result in different intervals in pitch. We can use this to our advantage, as bending between the second and third string can produce a semitone bend on the second, with a tone bend on the third. If you combine double- stop bends with a pre- bend/ release, the initial pitch becomes less crucial, and gives the impression of greater intonation control and accuracy. These ideas are derived from C Mixolydian ( C D E F G A Bb).
