EX­AM­PLE 2 Big bends

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Rock -

Bends of over a tone in size can sound dra­matic, and EC is no stranger to us­ing them. The first bend in this ex­am­ple is a tone-and-a-half (three frets) in size. The re­ally big bend hap­pens in bar five, and is a whop­ping five fret­ter! This five-fret bend is helped by the re­duced ten­sion of the third string, and the fact it is played so high up the neck. Be sure to warm up be­fore at­tempt­ing such hero­ics.
