Watch the Numbing Bends online guitar lesson by Tony Smotherman from Essentials: Power Ballad Soloing

"Numbing Bends" has a really epic feel, mainly attributed to the chords and target notes in the progression and the tension they create. The chords are Gmin - Ebmaj - Dmaj - Cmin - F5 - D/F#.

There are lots of opportunities to really build up speed before the progression loops back around to create an intense feel before hitting a target note on the downbeat again!
