Tips and Techniques,
Indian-Flavored Exotic Bends.
Okay.
This next lesson will be about
some even more interesting bends.
This is pretty far out I'm using.
In the pentatonic you have
these whole step intervals.
[MUSIC]
You have this minor third here, but here
is the whole step, whole step, here's the
minor third and here is the whole step.
So you have whole step here, here.
[MUSIC]
Here you have the minor third,
whole step, minor third, whole step.
So these who whole steps.
[MUSIC]
You can bend a note in between.
So if you have it here, for
instance a D flat and C, you can bend.
[MUSIC]
This note, the D, up to C.
[MUSIC]
Like this.
[MUSIC]
Like that.
[MUSIC]
And here.
[MUSIC]
And up here.
[MUSIC]
And when you, down here, on these strings,
you don't have to do it this way.
You can do it this way,
if you like to, do the bend.
[MUSIC]
So this is like C, D.
[MUSIC]
And a D flat.
Or no, a B,
a B in between bending up to C.
B flat, C, B, back to B flat.
[MUSIC]
Like this.
[MUSIC]
You can do it fast.
[MUSIC]
Something like that.
[MUSIC]
It's I
call it Indian-flavored, exotic bends.
So, practice this and
be careful with your fingers.
[MUSIC]
