Watch the Blues Bend online guitar lesson by Tom Wolfe from 50 Hard Bop Blues Licks You MUST Know

Bending the strings on the guitar is a very common effect that can emulate the voice and other instruments. When used well, it can be a very musical element in a solo. This phrase takes the 5th and flatted-3rd and bends them to create tension in the line that is resolved finally with the major 3rd of the root. Very bluesy and hip.
