As we progress through our journey as beginning guitarists, we turn our attention to string bending for this lesson.

Equipment and Sound: I used a Gibson Les Paul with P90s pickups on the bridge pickup, an Xotic Effects BB preamp Midboost for overdrive, and a Fender Blues Jr NOS amp. I mic'd it with an AKG D320B microphone and recorded into Garageband. I added a little reverb, delay, and compression after it had been recorded in Garageband.
