JW’S Example 8 JIMI HENDRIX- STYLE UNISON BENDS
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.
