EX­AM­PLE 7 BENDING WITH SLURS

TRACK 16

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: ROCK -

Slurs (ham­mer-ons and pull-offs) are mixed with bends and bend re­leases in this ex­am­ple to pro­vide a very ex­pres­sive, vo­cal-like de­liv­ery. The clas­sic Car­los ‘bend re­lease to pull-off’ is il­lus­trated in the sec­ond bar where the bend on the 13th fret should be played with your third fin­ger (make sure your first fin­ger is in po­si­tion on the 10th fret as you re­lease the bend, ready to re­ceive the pull-off). No­tice that all bends are played with­out vi­brato; Car­los rarely ap­plied vi­brato to string bends dur­ing the early part of his ca­reer.
