FREE GUITAR LESSON VIDEO-STRING BENDING BASIC LICK

In this guitar lesson I will show you the technique of string bending and give to the basic string bending lick.  We are still basing everything off the blues (minor pentatonic) scale as seen in the TAB below the video.  Make sure you support the bending finger with another finger for strength.  I use the 3rd finger to bend supported by my 2nd finger.  I’ll show you why I do this in the next video.  However, a lot of people bend with the 4th (pinky) finger supported by the 3rd finger.  Either way is effective, it really depends on what feels right for you.  Work this technique for a while until you feel you have a grasp on it and then check out the next couple videos which will take this technique further.  Remember to have fun with it.
