Guitar Tricks 117: Turn 1 Bend Into 10 Licks

There's more to one bend than meets the eye. This week Neal shows you how take a bend you may already know, and one of the most common, and turn it into 10 licks. These lead lines are great with blues mostly, but also rock and a little country.

Tip of the week: This one tip can improve and color your rhythm playing. Play partial chords instead of the whole barre chord shape.
