Watch the Mr. Bendy online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Blues Guitar Licks You MUST Know

Oddly enough, I stole this intro lick from a Pink Floyd bootleg from 1970. Yup, they used to play blues. This one is all about controlled bends. Here I am bending notes up a half step to my target tone. This makes for some really exciting sounds and cool vibrato that only bent strings can give you. The lick starts on bar 9 of a blues and outlines all of your chords. If you search you can find this tune online, it's called “Blues Scene”.
