In this lesson we'll talk about the lead guitar in the intro. It uses a lot of pre-bends and has a sound that kind of jumps out at you almost like a pedal steel.

We start with a pre-bend on the 4th fret of the 3rd string. We bring the pitch down and then bring it back up. Then, we jump up to the 2nd fret of the 1st string.

Next, we have our pinky on the 5th fret of the 1st string and pre-bend the 5th fret of the 2nd string. Play the high note and then play the low note and release the bend. Then, we bend the 4th fret of the 3rd string and play the 5th fret of the 2nd string.

Finally, we pre-bend the the 4th fret of the 4th string, release it, and play the 2nd fret of the 4th string. Then, play another 2nd fret of the 4th string and repeat the pre-bend move at the 4th fret and play two E's at the 2nd fret of the 4th string.
