Watch the Take 5: Blues Bends online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Take 5: Blues Bends
Hi, I'm Jeff McErlain and welcome to Take 5: Blues Bends. Bending strings is one of the most important techniques on the guitar. It's also one of the only instruments that you can actually bend on. String bending is also inherent in blues and rock guitar playing, and is essential to performing the genre legitimately.
In this course, I'll walk you though the technique of bending and the most common bends used in blues guitar. I build up the examples in levels from easiest to more difficult. That being said, they are somewhat difficult on some level. All of the performance studies are tabbed and notated and you'll get all the jam tracks to work with on your own. You can also loop and slow down the videos to work at your own pace. Grab your guitar and let's get bending!
