  • Hi GMC,

    We will cover the usage of various bending techniques in classic rock ballad soloing.

    Most beginners tend to learn to use bends as phrasing effect technique first. What this means is that they usually first apply bends solely as parts of previously learned licks with little or no attention to the actual bended notes.

    What we will try to do in this lesson is use the actual pitched (bended) notes as equally important part of our melody/phrasing. Bended note is completely different note from the one we started the bend, so these notes should be treated as a very important part of our melodies.

    The scale that we will use here is A minor:
