  • Greetings from Granada (Andalucia, Spain)!

    In this lesson I'm playing a song which I wrote to show you how to play a melody with energetic bending and aggressive playing approach. This lesson features bending up-down, legato, tap harmonics, tapping chords and some tremolo bar vibrato.
    I learned to do this kind of bending from guitarists like Santana, Steve Lukather and the great Gary Moore.
