This example starts off with a pedal steel lick. When bending strings
in a pedal steel style you must take care to bend in tune. You’ll need to practice the pre bends
until you develop muscle memory and can bend a note to pitch before you play it. I block strings
after I play them to shorten their duration and give the phrase some percussiveness.
The pedal tone lick is tricky. Play the double stops using your middle and ring
fingers and play the pedal tone with your pick.
