JW’S EXAMPLE 6
‘ JIMI’ EXCHANGE BENDS
The trick here is to bend a high string up, usually by a tone. At the same time we push the adjacent string, in this case the second. Once the first note has sounded, we slide the pressure across to the already pre- bent
8 second string. This should be a silent transition as the E is muted by the trailing underside of the fretting finger and you can add extra security by double muting with the unused fingers of the picking hand. This pre-bent lower string is then released back to its initial unbent pitch and, hey presto! – a Jimi Hendrix exchange bend. Simple!
