Tapping Bends

The Justinguitar.com Lessons on Guitar Licks

This is a very cool fun trick to add to your lick collection - just don't over do it 'cos it gets boring... but in the right place it sounds awesome!

Be sure to experiment with just single bend and taps and program into your playing the knowledge that if you are going to tap a bend, make sure you take into account the bend!

If you bend a tone, the note you want will be two frets lower that it would usually be.

It's all very logical but will most likely take a little while to make it happen naturally!

In the TAB, the bracketed note is not played (I have to have it in there to make the tab show properly the bends!).
