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

We start off with a huge double stop bend with a lot of power and force to start the pace off with a lot of feel. Following that, we play some fragmented arpeggios right out of G minor into some half step bends to create an almost David Gilmour type effect. After this, we follow up with some bluesy style licks to bring things back home and into a flashy octave run in G minor.
