Watch the Dirty Blues 6 online guitar lesson by Carl Verheyen from S.W.A.T. Blues
Bending is one of the most expressive qualities of the guitar. In this lesson I show my bending technique again and talk about the importance of listening to the sound your hands are making. Bending is all about control. Practice bending all the time, perfecting your control as described in the first chapter. I also explain the function of the 3rds and 7ths as they pertain to the I, IV and V chords. I also explain how the tritone works in the blues.
