Whether Joe Bonamassa is playing blues or rock he always seems to be able to craft interesting musical lines from otherwise standard blues based guitar licks.
One of the ways he does this is by his creative use of bent notes within his lead guitar lines. By themselves they may seem like a basic or ordinary technique, but woven into a seamless guitar line they can make even the most standard guitar lines sound much more interesting. His lead lines just seem to come alive so to speak.
These little bending tricks should be pretty straight forward and easy to understand. The tough part is making sure that your intonation with the bends, especially the pre-bends, is as accurate as possible.
So have fun with the little "Like Of The Week" lesson on the playing style of the great Joe Bonamassa and take it easy on those calluses. 🙂
