bend­ing on the low strings

Guitar Techniques - - VIDEO MASTERCLASS | BRETT GARSED PT6 -

Here Brett is bend­ing the fifth string, again us­ing his fourth fin­ger with all fin­gers be­hind it for sup­port. If you’ve not tried fourth-fin­ger string bends, Brett is a per­fect in­spi­ra­tion to draw from as his tech­nique al­lows him to use what­ever fin­ger he needs to bend with, as op­posed to favour­ing only, say, the sec­ond or third fin­gers (most com­mon choices with gui­tarists). To de­velop your tech­nique, ex­plore semi­tone (one fret’s worth) and tone (two frets’ worth) bends on the higher strings first be­fore mov­ing to the thicker mid­dle strings and then the thick low strings. Af­ter a few weeks, you’ll be a more ver­sa­tile gui­tarist.
