Watch the Tapping Bends online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 60 Electric Guitar Techniques You MUST Know
Tapping bends is a technique where you tap notes with a pick hand finger while holding a bend with your fret hand fingers. It's a way to create melodies that sound unique and unpredictable. When tapping bends, be aware sometimes it's tricky to stay within whatever scale you're going for. A lot of times, you'll find yourself tapping on frets outside of the scale making it feel counterintuitive.
Looking for inspiration? Aside from the obvious source, Jeff Beck can very well be caught in the act when it comes to tapping bends.
