The duane Eddy-style string bend is fea­tured in the bridge (bar 17). Prac­tise dip­ping the fifth string’s pitch a semi­tone be­fore you play the piece through. Another in­stance of this cool tech­nique also oc­curs in the solo in bars 37 and 38,5this time as an em­u­la­tion of rock and roll style uni­son bend­ing, but us­ing the whammy to dip the note on the lower string first. The shadows are of­ten mis­con­strued as be­ing mu­si­cally sim­ple – this solo should dis­pel such myths.
