Take this one very slowly at first! Don't try to play the whole thing at once. Maybe just tackle a bar or two first, and then add another bar, and another. If you're not used to using half step bends, it may be a little challenging at first. I love the sound of playing a note a half step lower than the one I want to hear, and bending up to it, instead of hitting the target note directly. That's part of the secret sauce in this comp. The other sauce ingredient is using open strings along with fretted notes and letting them ring out for a hot second.
