Watch the Play-along #17 online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Slap Bass

Here is a chance for us to trade licks using the open strings and the bending of other notes to create different tonalities. We’ll start in the key of G and bend up to the octave G by bending the F# on the D string to a G while letting the open G string ring. What a cool sound, huh?

Don’t break your fingers on this one. Hopefully, these back and forth exercises will inspire you to come up with some riffs of your own.
