Watch the Whammy Bar online guitar lesson by Jennifer Batten from Rock Sauce for Rhythm Guitar

I always keep my tremolo bar tight (not swinging freely) so I always know were it is and can grab it in a split second. A lot of times when I play single notes, my pinkie is curled around the bar as I pick, so I can use it at any time. The last two notes of this groove were preceded by harmonic chords I bent with the bar, so the bar was already in my hand when I went to pick the single notes.
