Watch the Level 2: Blues Bends online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Take 5: Blues Bends
In this study, we'll take a look at the two minor 3rd bends in the pentatonic scale. One is the minor 3rd between the root and b3rd, and the the other is between the 5th and b7th.
These bends are exceptionally cool, and we hear guys like Clapton, Page, and Gilmour use them all the time. One of the real kings of the bend is the legendary Albert King. I'm also tweaking the b3rd a little, and this is easily the MOST IMPORTANT bend to master, because it ain't the blues without it!
