  1. Hello, Justin here again.
  2. In this lesson we're
    gonna be checking out
  3. how to add vibrato to a bend.
  4. Lots and lots of people
    seem to struggle with this.
  5. It's actually relatively simple,
    when you know the trick.
  6. And the trick is:
    To let the string do the work.
  7. Now, what I mean by this is...
  8. In all of my bending stuff
    I have been using this note D.
  9. So, I am going to stay on that.
  10. That's... Third finger,
    third string, seventh fret.
  11. Once you've got a bend... going,
  12. and I am going to be using
    a tone bend for this little exercise now.
  13. There's a lot of pressure on the string,
  14. trying to push the string
    back down to its natural place.
  15. You are having to use quite a lot
    of effort to get that note bent up,
  16. making sure that you are using
    a good bending technique here.
  17. If you haven't got it already,
  18. you will not be able
    to put the vibrato.
  19. If you're trying to do it
    with your fingers straight
  20. without the thumb over
    and using the pivot point
  21. you're probably not going to be
    able to do a good bend with vibrato
  22. So... If you're one of those guys,
    go back and learn to bend properly first,
  23. and then come back
    and have a look at this lesson.
  24. So... As you bend up,
    you've got all of this pressure,
  25. the string pressing down.
  26. Now, the trick with
    adding vibrato to a bend
  27. is to first of all make sure
    that you get the bend in tune and stop.
  28. If you watch my other vibrato series,
  29. you'll notice that I talk about
    hitting the note,
  30. and then gradually opening up the vibrato.
  31. And this is quite important
    with a bend as well,
  32. because you need to get the bend in tune
    before you get the vibrato on,
  33. otherwise it can sound to the listener...
  34. that you never actually reached the note
    that you were trying to bend to.
  35. So, you bend up to the note first,
    then what you do is:
  36. You relax your fingers ever so slightly,
    relax the pressure....
  37. Let the force of the string
    push your finger down a little bit,
  38. and then press it back up.
  39. And it's worth doing this
    really slowly first.
  40. So, we are going to go to a close up,
    and just going to bend the note up,
  41. and then relax my finger a little bit
    so it comes right down,
  42. and then push it back up
    to the correct pitch,
  43. let it come down a bit
    and back up to the correct pitch.
  44. Each time you are just going from here,
    let it come down, back up,
  45. come down, back up.
  46. And you don't try and pull the string down
  47. you just let the string
    kind of go back to where it wants to go.
  48. Don't fight the pressure of the string,
    just relax it, push it back up,
  49. relax it, push it back up,
    relax it, push it back up.
  50. And if you can get used
    to doing that nice and slowly
  51. and you get the feel for it,
    then starting to do it faster
  52. becomes a lot easier.
  53. So, let's go and have a look
    at a close up of this,
  54. and... Hopefully it will sort
    your bending vibrato out.
  55. So, here we go,
  56. we're starting with
    our regular note here,
  57. which is the note D: Seventh fret,
    third string, third finger.
  58. Now, we are going to start
    by bending that up a tone.
  59. So, if you are not sure about
    your bending technique anyway,
  60. you might want to check it just first,
  61. (Plays)
  62. Make sure you can get that nicely in pitch
  63. (Plays)
  64. Now once you've got the bend up like this,
    what you are going to try and do
  65. is let the string
    push your finger down a little bit,
  66. and then push it back up
    to the same pitch.
  67. Let the string go back to where it wants
    and then push it back up.
  68. Now I'm just going
    to do that nice and slow...
  69. (Plays)
  70. Relax, push it back up,
    relax, push it back up,
  71. relax, push it back up.
  72. You're not relaxing it
    right back to the beginning,
  73. right down to the base,
    you're just relaxing it a little bit.
  74. (Plays)
  75. Trying to get a consistent amount of...
    Relaxation and pressing it back up,
  76. and trying to get it right back
    to the same pitch each time.
  77. (Plays)
  78. And once you've got that down,
    you've got that feeling.
  79. So practice that for a bit first,
    if you're new to bending with vibrato,
  80. you want to give that a week or two
    of practice, five-ten minutes a day.
  81. Once you've got that idea,
  82. then you can start experimenting with
    the intensity or the speed of the vibrato
  83. (Plays)
  84. You can see the neck is
    wobbling around a little bit.
  85. Still keeping my good grip
    and my pivot point
  86. like we did for the bend
  87. (Plays)
  88. Or a bit slower...
  89. (Plays)
  90. You can get really crazy with this stuff.
  91. A nice trick is bending it up, back down,
    back up and then putting a vibrato
  92. (Plays)
  93. Takes quite a lot of control.
    Get the note up...
  94. (Plays)
  95. A little bit sharp that time for me,
    actually a bit naughty,
  96. (Plays)
  97. ... Then getting your vibrato good
  98. (Plays)
  99. Slow
    (Plays)
  100. Faster
    (Plays)
  101. (Plays)
  102. Quite a tricky one to get the vibrato
    happening all of the way down.
  103. But, again, experiment,
    just like I talked about before.
  104. Emulation, experimentation, and ease.
  105. Emulating people's bends, that you like...
  106. (Plays)
  107. Nice tip there,
    you can do that sort of stuff
  108. There's a lot of things you can do.
  109. Experimenting,
    like I was just trying to do
  110. trying to get the vibrato
    to happen all the way down the note
  111. (Plays)
  112. You can go crazy with these things...
    It's quite good fun.
  113. Remember, it has to be easy,
    but if you've got your bending technique
  114. and you've got your pivot point
    and your thumb over,
  115. then you shouldn't find it
    too difficult at all.
  116. Now, the other kind of things
    that you need to know about this one.
  117. First of all, if you're going to do
    any of these sort of stuff
  118. with the first finger,
    then you tend to pull down with that.
  119. Pushing up with your first finger
    is pretty difficult,
  120. so you tend to...
  121. (Plays)
  122. So, this time you're
    pulling the string down
  123. (Plays)
  124. And, again, letting the string
    relax back to where it wants to go,
  125. which in this case is physically up,
    and then pushing it back again...
  126. (Plays)
  127. And of course, the same would apply
    if you were doing a big bend like on...
  128. You know, quite low down...
    If you are bending this here,
  129. this note D, which is fifth fret,
    fifth string, third finger, up to E
  130. (Plays)
  131. You have to be... Relax,
    push it back, relax, push it back...
  132. (Plays)
  133. It's quite a good trick
    to remember on those thicker strings.
  134. You're not likely to do that a lot,
    so you don't have to practice that.
  135. You don't have to practice it as much.
  136. The ones I'd practice,
    is definitely your third finger,
  137. I don't even bother practicing it
    with my little finger
  138. because I don't really think that works,
    and I don't know of any pro guitar players
  139. that do a lot of bending
    with the little finger...
  140. Might be a couple of the rock guys,
    but very, very, very few of them.
  141. So, I wouldn't worry about doing that.
  142. Very rare to bend
    with the second finger as well;
  143. it's possible,
    Clapton does it a little bit.
  144. You might want to practice doing that.
  145. I don't usually do bends
    with the second finger.
  146. So, if you're using your first finger,
    you're going to pull down
  147. and then add your vibrato.
  148. Most common bending with the third finger.
    If you're new to this sort of stuff,
  149. I would just recommned practicing
    getting your bend with the third finger...
  150. (Plays)
  151. And then let it relax and push it back up.
  152. Make sure you practice
    all the parts of the guitar neck as well.
  153. So, that's giving you a bit of a look
    at how to apply vibrato to a bend.
  154. Of course, the same rules apply that
    we talked about with the basic vibrato,
  155. making sure that you practice it
    all around the neck,
  156. because in each different part
    it's going to feel a little different.
  157. So, you don't want to just
    try it in the one spot; practice it a lot.
  158. As you're practicing it, try and
    get it right in the one place first,
  159. so you get the right feeling.
    And then be moving it
  160. right up, as far up as you can go,
  161. and down as low as you can go,
    which is probably second or third fret,
  162. you're not probably going to
    do big bends in the first fret
  163. unless you have fingers of steel or you're
    Stevie Ray Vaughan or something like that.
  164. So... I think that's probably enough
    for you to get going on that...
  165. If you've got any questions,
    check out the forum,
  166. look for the TE-009 area of the forum,
  167. and we'll get your questions
    answered there.
  168. I hope that helps, and...
    See you again soon.
  169. Bye bye
