PLAY­ING TIPS

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Blues -

[Bars 58- 65] The sec­ond half of the solo con­tains some out­ra­geous SRVstyle catch bends. For th­ese you’ll need to push the first fin­ger­tip over the first string slightly in or­der to find the lower string as you push through the bend. Gary fi­nally ends on a very long repicked bend up. This ob­vi­ously needs to be very grad­ual, as you don’t want to tar­get the fi­nal 21st fret G# un­til the A7 (al­though this is the­o­ret­i­cally the wrong note for this chord, it is pass­ing back to C#m, so works in the con­text!). Gary’s play­ing is the per­fect com­bi­na­tion of at­ti­tude and real mu­si­cal­ity – a rare thing.
