JW’S COM­PLETE SOLO

Guitar Techniques - - Play: String Bending -

If you’ve not jumped straight to the end of this les­son, then you’ll be fa­mil­iar with all the ap­proaches from bars 1- 20, with our ten ap­proaches neatly en­cap­su­lated in two- bar chunks. To con­clude, we add a cou­ple of ex­tra ideas in the form of a 70s Jeff Beck- en­dorsed fret- bend move us­ing the third fin­ger to play each ini­tial note with a rapid first- fin­ger down­wards yank of the string to sound rather like rolling the pitch wheel on a Moog synth ( think Jan Ham­mer); this is fol­lowed by a neat bend- slide- bend com­bi­na­tion, cre­at­ing the im­pres­sion of su­per- hu­man mas­sive bends that sound like they orig­i­nate from a sin­gle po­si­tion. Make sure you fol­low the in­di­ca­tions in the tran­scrip­tion and all should be well.
