The Secrets of Learning the Fretboard

LRT-019 String Bending Lick

Practice String Bending with this Lick

Play this string bending lick for fun or to practice your bends.  It was written and recorded by Charles Gervase.

This lick covers a 1.5 step bend and full (1 step) bends on the 2nd and 3rd strings.  This lick goes slow enough that you can practice hitting your target notes.  The key is to develop your ear and feel with this one so you can hit those target notes at any time!

If you’re having trouble hitting the proper pitch, play the target note first to get a feel for it.  Ex. To play a target note for a 1.5 step bend, play 3 frets up.
