[Bars 26-33 and 66-73] The second (and third) verse needs slightly more careful volume control at the beginning (you could also try using the fingers and thumb here). The first-finger tone-and-a-half bend at the end of this section (bar 33) is the first of Gary’s more extreme bends, and these might need extra practice. Try rolling the whole hand to the side (as with a BB King-style vibrato) rather than trying to pull down on the first finger alone. [Bars 34- 41] Here, Gary spells out the underlying chord movement with some simple but effective Steve Cropper-style 6th chords (ie inverted root and 3rd). This is a great way to add harmonic interest and texture without bulking up the chord shapes and filling out too much space in the track (especially if you’re using distortion/overdrive). Gary innately knew what worked where, and also had a great sense of dynamics.
