One, two, three, four.
We're doing some rhythmic bending here.
This is where I'm bending a melody.
So those two notes,
you know, you could play them just by
But I think it's more stylist,
to bend them.
So, let's listen to it one more time.
the part of this rhythmic with the bend,
that's really the part where the,
we're aiming at or focusing on is that.
Now, the trick here is
we're just trying to simulate,
But instead, we're bending it.
And let's have a look at how we do this.
So there we go.
We have to go from the,
the C note all the way up to a quick,
E, but we hear the transition,
and it's just a quick one.
So you can practice that in time.
One, two, three, four.
again, we're, we're sort of copying the
idea of going.
But it's so
much more soulful and rock to go.
the one that puts a big smile on my face.
So, let's see what else we got here.
And, and then at the end.
I, I really wanna spend some time with
this cuz I've seen so
many students who have learned to bend and
learned to vibrato but
haven't developed the techniques yet to be
able to do it rhythmically.
And this is such a great way to phrase.
You can, you know, play a melody that
normally would be very stiff.
you know, really add soul and, and
guitar character to it.
So bending is the best way to do that and
I love to do it with some rhythmic
We will also have some chicka-chickas in
Let's see where they are.
Now this is an interesting chicka because
I'm aiming [SOUND] at the top the top
strings and pitch [SOUND] and
then I'm aiming to the bottom strings.
So I'm kinda going do-do-dat-dat,
do-dat, do-do-dat-dat, do-dat,
it's still you know, all in the rhythmic
grid of a strum, so
basically underneath all this is the
You're just keeping that motion going but
you're aiming for the top and the bottom
you're leaving out some of the notes to
leave that nice little hole.
you're sort of playing drums and guitar at
the same time.
So I wanna hear you do that one.
All these combinations of bending and the
I would love to hear you play.
So, please send in a video and check out
other people's videos as well, so
you can see what comments I've already
And I'd like to give you some help as
well, some advice, some ideas.
So I want to hear you play.
Try it with a clean sound.
Try it with distortion.
And just make it indestructible.
It's so much you can put your eyes back,
you can rock out.
