Bending Licks - Overview is a video guitar lesson presented by Jason Loughlin and is sourced from 1-2-3 Country.


The last country lead technique that we'll work with is bending. This is great for imitating steel guitar. It's even better when you're bending within the changes. Each one of these bending licks is bending in or out of a chord tone. We'll be using half step approach bends, diatonic bends and bending double stops. I'm using hybrid picking for these bends. Sometimes I'm using pick and middle finger, sometimes just middle and ring finger.
