In our last example, we are going to examine a technique where we bend up one string, and than come down another string. Often used by Jimi Hendrix, among many others, this technique further explores the possibilities with bending and the intelligence it adds to your playing. Played in the key of C, we will accomplish this by bending up on the B string, and than coming down on the G string. The key to doing this successfully is to make sure to switch strings once the strings touch one another. Let's try this with a backing track and see how it sounds.
