Watch the Hog Wild online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Eclectic Blues Licks You MUST Know
There are two very cool minor 3rd bends found in the pentatonic scale. In the minor pentatonic scale they are found between the root and the b3rd, and the 5th and b7. I overlooked these two bends for years even though I heard my favorite players use them all the time.
Check out "Sleepy Time Time" from Cream live, Clapton uses that bend all over that tune. Just for kicks, listen to everything else he does as well on that recording!
