In this lesson, you'll learn how a bluesy bend serves two purposes in creating a great riff. First, the bend adds a bluesy dimension to the riff. Next, the bend helps you transition easily from one chord to the next. It is easier to play this riff with the bend than without.

See if you can add bends to help you transition from chord to chord in other riffs that you know.
