If you remember back through the emails that you have been getting so far, you will remember that I sent you an email about ornamentation with your phrasing and improvisation. This is going to follow on from that.


So what is the one technique that can make any guitar player sound like a pro?


In tune string bends!


A lot of amateur guitar players will use string bends poorly, by bending to a note that is out of tune. Professional guitar players (the good ones at least!) bend strings to hit a very specific pitch, and can hit that pitch, every single time.


Get your string bends in tune and take your playing up a notch!
