  • Bends are one of the techniques that make the guitar such an expressive instrument. They can add so much to a melody and can transform the easiest leads into amazing guitar licks.

    In this lesson we will study a few ideas that hopefully will inspire you to create new licks. The key to success here is to be as precise as possible. Make sure that your bends are in tune. Some of the following bends are pretty hard to play, but practice makes perfect. If a lick is too difficult, try to find a few ideas that are at reach.

    The key of this track is in A and we'll be using 3 shapes of the minor pentatonic scale.

    Work well!
