Watch the Gimme Lovin' online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Play in the Style of Billy Gibbons

This one is basically the intro lick to 'Gimme All Your Lovin' from ZZ Top's huge record Eliminator. It's a great example of Billy's use of extending a double stop bend to create a great sense of tension. I love the rub and distant sound we get when bending the Bb to the C in unison. The trick on this one is to really let that shine through. The second half of the lick incorporates a blues/rock guitar staple of tweaking the flatted third of your minor pentatonic scale. I am using a C minor pentatonic scale and the flat third in this case would be Eb. As you can see I bend that note a quarter step every time I play it; this little trick is absolutely essential to any guitar player's standard technique. I am being completely honest when I say this is one of those things that can make all the difference in your guitar playing. Try playing the lick without bending that note then try it with bending the note as I lay out in the video. I bet you you will never play that note without tweaking it again. :-)
