  • Hi Guys,

    Welcome to my lesson No. 60

    BASIC ROCK GUITAR(Bending & Vibrato)

    In the previous BASIC ROCK GUITAR series we talked about 16th rhythm, so we'll make the next step and we'll take a look at the most important part of guitar soloing: Bending & Vibrato.

    I used several techniques here like whole/half tone bendings, slow/fast bendings, rakes and much more to give you a good overview how you could use these techniques in a song.

    Have fun!

    The structure of the Jam track:

    | A | Dm6/A | A A/G# | F#m7 |
    |C#7/E# | D | B7/D# | G D/F# |
    | A | G/D D | A/E E | D A/C# Bm7 |

    C: Part Outro 1:03-0:54
