Watch the Tremolodic Bends online guitar lesson by Jennifer Batten from Rock Sauce For Lead Guitar
This is kind of a manic groove from my tune "Headbanger's Hairspray". When playing 16th notes, the tempo is fast, so there's not a lot of room to breath. The groove itself is comprised of tremolo picking, natural harmonics, pedaling (with the open A string), and a pinch harmonic. The melody comes alive from half and whole step bends and tremolo bar use. The first time you hear me play the melody, it's very straight and stiff on purpose. You can then compare it to the subsequent versions where I add various techniques to bring it alive with emotion.
