Watch the Steady Trips online guitar lesson by Gary Hoey from Blues Rock Reactor
Here we'll be using a step-and-a-half bend - a minor third bend - that will give it a dynamic sound. To nail the bend, you really have to give it a push, and if you're still having trouble you might want to try a lower gauge string. To make sure I'm hitting the correct note with the bend, I play the note that I'm starting at, then go to the note I'm trying to bend to so I can get it in my ear. This is a great lick to use over the turnaround (V chord) in an A blues.
