This course is designed to examine various components of string bending which will increase your vocabulary and technical skills thus allowing you to play much more expressively in a vocal manner through the use of string pitch manipulation. You will receive 6 jam tracks in this course. One will strictly be bass and drums, 4 of them will include rhythm guitar supporting various harmonic approaches, and one jam track which has a solo.
This course will stay exclusively on the 3rd string in the key of C through various scales including minor pentatonic, blues scale, Dorian mode, blues composite, and half-step whole step diminished. You will apply various techniques of the fretting hand including hammer ons, pull offs, legato slides, bends, releases, and pre-bends. You will also use just your right hand fingers to allow for greater tonal variation in dynamic approaches.
The 10 examples will demonstrate various rhythmic approaches for a bend in release which will increase your expressiveness in your vibrato. You will learn how to keep the string ringing through left hand manipulation which will give a more vocal sound to your playing.
