JW’S Example 1 STRAIGHT BENDS
Our first example really tests your bending accuracy. Ideally, the first four bars should be executed without adding vibrato. This presents a real challenge to your judgement of intonation but, given time, this can be developed just like any other skill. These licks are based on D minor pentatonic ( D F G A C) and showcase bends ranging from a tone ( two frets) up to a major 3rd ( four frets).
