JW’S Ex­am­ple 8 JIMI HEN­DRIX- STYLE UNI­SON BENDS

Guitar Techniques - - Play: String Bending -

Uni­son bends are one of Jimi’s most recog­nis­able solo­ing tech­niques. We are aim­ing for two notes of iden­tial pitch, played in uni­son, with the higher note fret­ted by the first fin­ger on the first or sec­ond string, and the lower one bent up a tone on the tring be­low. Jimi would add vi­brato on this bend to cre­ate an weird, os­cil­lat­ing ef­fect. Pat Metheny does a sim­i­lar thing, but bend­ing only a semi­tone and with less em­pha­sis on vi­brato.
