One, two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
All right,
this is very similar to the first bend
that we just did in the previous example,
but I'm doing one small change.
Instead of bending up twice.
[MUSIC]
I'm bending up once.
[MUSIC]
And then coming back down and
doing vibrato.
Now, why would I spend time explaining
such a small detail?
Because, on the first bend I bend up.
[MUSIC]
But then when I bend down.
[MUSIC]
I'm actually vibrattoing down towards
the ground.
So, this is really developing the
technique of your,
of your fingers to adjust both that up and
down and vibratto and bending technique.
[MUSIC]
So I'm bending up.
[MUSIC]
And then vibratoing down.
[MUSIC]
And when I'm talking about up and down,
I'm talking about physical directions you
know, in relation to the floor.
This isn't pitch.
This is up toward the ceiling.
[MUSIC]
And vibratoing down towards the floor.
[MUSIC]
So you may even have to.
[MUSIC]
You sort of, shift that finger around,
you might use it in a different part of it
even.
It's just really you'll get the feel of it
the more you do it, and
I want to do it a little more together
with you, so let's try it.
One two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
There you go.
[MUSIC]
That's nice.
[MUSIC]
Four.
[MUSIC]
One, two, three, four!
