Imagine a big garden...Flowers and interesting arrangements, rocks, streams, maybe a little lake ... But everything is very big and obvious somehow. At one point you notice some very small flowers in a corner and you are heading that way, only to figure out incredibly intricate patterns created with the little flowers. Now transpose this idea into guitar playing - I thought that micro tonal bends could be the little flowers. You have no clue what they actually are but they are a very cool and unique detail, which can only be felt not explained exactly biggrin.gif

This video is among my favorites - explained by the awesome Mr. GG himself biggrin.gif



Now, are you growing the micro tonal little flowers in your garden? biggrin.gif If yes, how did you come across them and are you aware of when to deploy them in your phrases?

I don't think I could play guitar if I wasn't allowed my micro tonal bends smile.gif

It's a proven fact that guitar faces have a bigger impact on tone than wood does.
