Prebending Strings: Using This Trick in Licks

Get full access

This lick works with a D chord, and I'm prebending on the 2nd string after sliding up to the same note. If you dont know what prebending is, you should check out Prebending Strings

After playing the ghost note on the 3rd string, slide from the 5th to the 7th fret on the 2nd string. After the next ghost note on the 2nd string, play the the note in the 5th fret on the 1st string. Prebend the 2nd string, and release it after playing the string. Finish it up with the note in the 3rd fret, on the 2nd string.

I'm hybrid picking on this, but you can also use a flat pick if you want.

Again try doing this without the ghost notes, and don't worry about the palm muting yet either. When you feel comfortable with it, then you can add the other tricks.

I'm also using a compressor, reverb, and some delay on this one too.
