Technique: Bending Strings (Guitar Lesson IM-144) How to play IF Stage 4

  • 0:10 - 0:11
    Hi, How are you doing?
  • 0:11 - 0:12
    Justin here.
  • 0:12 - 0:14
    Welcome to IM-144.
  • 0:14 - 0:17
    In which we are going
    to be checking out String Bending.
  • 0:17 - 0:19
    Now, String Bending is
    a very very cool technique
  • 0:19 - 0:21
    used a lot in Rock, and also Blues
  • 0:21 - 0:25
    but it's unfortunately
    an electric guitar only technique.
  • 0:25 - 0:27
    Those of you who only have an acoustic guitar,
  • 0:27 - 0:29
    please feel free to watch the video
  • 0:29 - 0:31
    and maybe try doing it
  • 0:31 - 0:32
    but you will probably find it very difficult
  • 0:32 - 0:34
    and I don't want you to hurt your hands.
  • 0:34 - 0:36
    So maybe you might want to
    leave this lesson
  • 0:36 - 0:38
    until you have an electric guitar.
  • 0:38 - 0:40
    The most important thing
    when you learn String Bending
  • 0:40 - 0:42
    is making sure
    that you get your technique right.
  • 0:42 - 0:45
    Many people start trying
    to do String Bending
  • 0:45 - 0:46
    by using their fingers
  • 0:46 - 0:47
    and that just doesn't work.
  • 0:47 - 0:50
    You really have to use your
    "Wrist" and your "Arm."
  • 0:50 - 0:51
    So, let's get into a close up
  • 0:51 - 0:52
    and I will go ahead and show you
  • 0:52 - 0:54
    exactly how
    to perform this technique.
  • 0:55 - 0:56
    The first note we are going
    to be bending
  • 0:56 - 0:58
    is the note D.
  • 0:58 - 0:59
    So, I would like you
    to start by putting your
  • 0:59 - 1:05
    Third Finger down in the Seventh Fret,
    of the Third String.
  • 1:05 - 1:07
    Now, the first rule of String Bending
    is that you
  • 1:07 - 1:10
    always use more than
    one finger, where possible.
  • 1:10 - 1:12
    So, your Third Finger is down here.
  • 1:12 - 1:14
    That's the one that's going
    to be dong the String Bending.
  • 1:14 - 1:17
    So we are going to support that one,
    with the Second Finger
  • 1:17 - 1:19
    back behind it, in the Sixth Fret.
  • 1:19 - 1:21
    It doesn't really matter where
    in the fret it goes.
  • 1:21 - 1:22
    It can go right up the the fret,
  • 1:22 - 1:24
    even if it snuck into the Seventh Fret
  • 1:24 - 1:25
    that wouldn't be too bad.
  • 1:25 - 1:29
    But, try and keep it back
    in the Sixth Fret, if you can.
  • 1:29 - 1:30
    Now the second rule is that
  • 1:30 - 1:33
    you are going to
    be using your "Hand and "Arm"
  • 1:33 - 1:35
    and not your fingers.
  • 1:35 - 1:37
    Now this is really important.
  • 1:37 - 1:39
    It's probably the most common mistake
    that people make when they
  • 1:39 - 1:41
    are learning to do String Bending.
  • 1:41 - 1:43
    So, what you are not going to do is:
  • 1:43 - 1:45
    do not keep
    your fingers square to the fret,
  • 1:45 - 1:46
    while trying to push up,
  • 1:46 - 1:47
    like this.
  • 1:47 - 1:48
    It's really difficult.
  • 1:48 - 1:50
    Difficult to hold, difficult to control
  • 1:50 - 1:53
    and it is generally just bad.
  • 1:53 - 1:54
    So, don't do that.
  • 1:54 - 1:55
    The whole idea here,
  • 1:55 - 1:58
    what you should be doing
    is using your "Wrist"
  • 1:58 - 1:59
    to create the Bend.
  • 1:59 - 2:01
    You can see that
    my fingers are actually "locked"
  • 2:01 - 2:05
    And that I'm using the motion of
    my Arm and Wrist
  • 2:05 - 2:07
    to push the string up.
  • 2:07 - 2:08
    And this is the motion.
  • 2:08 - 2:10
    Now what you will
    most likely find is that
  • 2:10 - 2:12
    it is very awkward to start off with,
  • 2:12 - 2:14
    to try and get
    this Wrist movement happening.
  • 2:14 - 2:16
    And for a little while
    you will be struggling
  • 2:16 - 2:17
    and you will be going like this
  • 2:17 - 2:19
    moving your fingers
    and trying to figure it out.
  • 2:19 - 2:20
    You will grip it incorrectly
  • 2:20 - 2:22
    but then one day you will do it
  • 2:22 - 2:23
    and it will be really easy.
  • 2:23 - 2:25
    And when you get that one,
    and it's really easy,
  • 2:25 - 2:27
    you will know that you are doing it right.
  • 2:27 - 2:29
    Because it's always that feeling.
  • 2:30 - 2:32
    Now, probably the easiest way
    to think of it
  • 2:32 - 2:33
    is that if you hold your hand out -
  • 2:33 - 2:36
    you can see that my fingers are
    now pointing toward the camera -
  • 2:36 - 2:39
    if I just, now press my palm,
  • 2:39 - 2:40
    up against the neck,
  • 2:40 - 2:42
    similar to pivoting it.
  • 2:42 - 2:43
    Pivoting here,
  • 2:43 - 2:45
    where the edge of First Finger,
  • 2:45 - 2:46
    actually touching on the neck.
  • 2:46 - 2:48
    And when you are doing
    your String Bending
  • 2:48 - 2:51
    you will find that part
    of your finger, right where it joins the hand,
  • 2:51 - 2:54
    will be actually touching the guitar neck
  • 2:54 - 2:56
    because that is your pivot point.
  • 2:56 - 2:57
    Now you can see,
  • 2:57 - 2:59
    if I fold my hand,
  • 2:59 - 3:02
    it looks like a "L" shape.
  • 3:02 - 3:03
    Then I put it in the same place.
  • 3:03 - 3:05
    If I make the same movement
  • 3:05 - 3:09
    you can see that the fingers
    seem to be pushing across the strings.
  • 3:09 - 3:09
    Now, of coarse,
  • 3:09 - 3:10
    it really doesn't look like that
  • 3:10 - 3:12
    when you are doing bending
  • 3:12 - 3:14
    but that's just to give you the idea.
  • 3:14 - 3:16
    The idea of levering against here.
  • 3:16 - 3:18
    Against that part of
    the guitar neck.
  • 3:18 - 3:20
    That's the movement that
    you are after.
  • 3:20 - 3:22
    And you will find that when
    you get that,
  • 3:22 - 3:24
    bending becomes really simple.
  • 3:24 - 3:25
    So, let's go back.
  • 3:25 - 3:30
    Put your Third Finger and Second Finger
    in the Seventh Fret and Sixth Fret, respectively
  • 3:30 - 3:32
    and try pushing up.
  • 3:32 - 3:33
    You might even want to
  • 3:33 - 3:35
    put your First Finger down
    in the Fifth Fret as well.
  • 3:35 - 3:39
    But see if you can get that feeling,
    of your arm doing it.
  • 3:39 - 3:41
    The fingers you can see are locked into place.
  • 3:41 - 3:42
    They are not moving at all.
  • 3:42 - 3:43
    They are solid.
  • 3:43 - 3:45
    It wouldn't matter how I move my hand,
  • 3:45 - 3:46
    my fingers should stay the same.
  • 3:46 - 3:48
    And once holding the guitar neck,
  • 3:48 - 3:49
    That's how they move.
  • 3:49 - 3:51
    It's this motion here.
  • 3:51 - 3:53
    It does take a little bit of practise.
  • 3:53 - 3:55
    Don't worry if you don't get it
    correct immediately.
  • 3:55 - 3:58
    Just see if you
    can keep doing that motion
  • 3:58 - 4:00
    and when you find it getting easy
  • 4:00 - 4:03
    you will probably know
    that you are doing it correct.
  • 4:03 - 4:06
    Now, the next really important rule - number three:
  • 4:06 - 4:08
    It is, "Know where you are bending to,"
  • 4:08 - 4:11
    because in String Bending,
    it is possible to play really horrible
  • 4:11 - 4:12
    after two notes.
  • 4:12 - 4:15
    So what we are going to start off doing,
    is learning a little exercise
  • 4:15 - 4:18
    to help you get your "bends" in-tune.
  • 4:18 - 4:21
    So what were are going to start of with is
    playing this note at the
  • 4:21 - 4:23
    Seventh Fret,
    Third String, with our Third Finger.
  • 4:23 - 4:26
    . . .
  • 4:26 - 4:28
    Then we are going to move our hand up one fret
  • 4:28 - 4:30
    and play the Eight Fret
    of the same string.
  • 4:30 - 4:32
    . . .
  • 4:32 - 4:34
    Then we are going to move back
    to the Seventh Fret
  • 4:34 - 4:35
    and play it again
  • 4:35 - 4:37
    . . .
  • 4:37 - 4:39
    And then try and bend it to the sound,
  • 4:39 - 4:42
    to the pitch of that note at the Eight Fret
  • 4:42 - 4:45
    . . .
  • 4:45 - 4:45
    So again we go
  • 4:45 - 4:46
    Seventh Fret
  • 4:46 - 4:47
    . . .
  • 4:47 - 4:48
    Eight Fret
  • 4:48 - 4:49
    . . .
  • 4:49 - 4:50
    Seventh Fret
  • 4:50 - 4:51
    . . .
  • 4:51 - 4:51
    Bend
  • 4:51 - 4:54
    . . .
  • 4:54 - 4:58
    Now, don't be putting
    any vibrato on as yet.
  • 4:58 - 5:00
    Just try and get your bend
    to the accurate pitch.
  • 5:00 - 5:01
    It should feel quite easy.
  • 5:01 - 5:03
    It's only a semi-tone bend.
  • 5:03 - 5:05
    You could probably do it
    with your fingers the wrong way
  • 5:05 - 5:06
    and get away with it.
  • 5:06 - 5:10
    But it should feel extremely easy
    if you are doing the technique correctly.
  • 5:10 - 5:11
    Let's go again:
  • 5:11 - 5:11
    Seventh Fret
  • 5:11 - 5:13
    . . .
  • 5:13 - 5:13
    Eight Fret
  • 5:13 - 5:15
    . . .
  • 5:15 - 5:15
    Seventh Fret
  • 5:15 - 5:16
    . . .
  • 5:16 - 5:17
    Bend
  • 5:17 - 5:19
    . . .
  • 5:19 - 5:21
    So it's a little four note sequence.
  • 5:21 - 5:26
    . . .
  • 5:26 - 5:32
    . . .
  • 5:32 - 5:34
    Now, you want to
    practise that a little bit first.
  • 5:34 - 5:36
    This is called a Semi-Tone Bend
  • 5:36 - 5:38
    Because we are just bending one fret.
  • 5:38 - 5:41
    . . .
  • 5:41 - 5:44
    But we can also bend a whole tone,
    which is two frets.
  • 5:44 - 5:45
    In which case we would play the
  • 5:45 - 5:46
    Seventh Fret
  • 5:46 - 5:47
    . . .
  • 5:47 - 5:47
    Ninth Fret
  • 5:47 - 5:48
    . . .
  • 5:48 - 5:49
    back to the
    Seventh Fret
  • 5:49 - 5:50
    . . .
  • 5:50 - 5:50
    and bend a tone
  • 5:50 - 5:54
    . . .
  • 5:54 - 5:59
    . . .
  • 5:59 - 6:01
    Like I said, "Absolutely no vibrato."
  • 6:01 - 6:07
    Make sure that you get the bend
    really nicely in-tuned.
  • 6:07 - 6:14
    . . .
  • 6:14 - 6:16
    Now, once you feel comfortable with that,
    the Semi-Tone
  • 6:16 - 6:21
    . . .
  • 6:21 - 6:22
    and the Tone.
  • 6:22 - 6:28
    . . .
  • 6:28 - 6:30
    Then you might want to try it
    on the Second String.
  • 6:30 - 6:32
    Same frets as before are acceptable.
  • 6:32 - 6:37
    . . .
  • 6:38 - 6:43
    . . .
  • 6:43 - 6:44
    and then a Tone
  • 6:44 - 6:55
    . . .
  • 6:55 - 6:57
    And then finally on the thinnest string
  • 6:57 - 7:02
    . . .
  • 7:02 - 7:07
    . . .
  • 7:07 - 7:08
    and a Tone
  • 7:08 - 7:13
    . . .
  • 7:14 - 7:19
    . . .
  • 7:20 - 7:21
    Some of you may have noticed
  • 7:21 - 7:23
    that all of the bends
    I was doing
  • 7:23 - 7:24
    were going up
  • 7:24 - 7:25
    and you've never heard them
    come down.
  • 7:25 - 7:26
    And the reason for all that is
  • 7:26 - 7:29
    I was muting all
    of the strings with, my picking hand.
  • 7:29 - 7:32
    So, as soon as I performed the bend
  • 7:32 - 7:33
    (plays)
  • 7:33 - 7:36
    The picking hand touches the strings
  • 7:36 - 7:38
    then I release the bend.
  • 7:38 - 7:40
    That way you avoid
    the "Seagull Effect".
  • 7:40 - 7:44
    for example (plays)
  • 7:44 - 7:48
    Sometimes it sounds "cool",
    but most times it is not desirable .
  • 7:48 - 7:50
    So, try and get into the habit of
    when you are doing
  • 7:50 - 7:51
    your bending practice,
  • 7:51 - 7:54
    that you go (plays)
  • 7:54 - 7:55
    . . .
  • 7:55 - 7:56
    with this hand
  • 7:56 - 7:57
    Mute
  • 7:57 - 8:00
    Relax the bend,
    then you can move to the next note.
  • 8:00 - 8:04
    . . .
  • 8:04 - 8:06
    Here touches the strings.
  • 8:06 - 8:07
    It's the outside of the palm
  • 8:07 - 8:08
    here
  • 8:08 - 8:11
    that does the string dampening
  • 8:11 - 8:12
    just to ensure that the
    note sounds properly
  • 8:12 - 8:14
    . . .
  • 8:14 - 8:16
    stop, and relax
  • 8:16 - 8:18
    Otherwise, you get (plays)
  • 8:18 - 8:22
    And often that sound (plays)
    doesn't really sound cool.
  • 8:22 - 8:24
    It can be used to good effect later on
  • 8:24 - 8:27
    but it's not probably something
    that you would want to start off learning.
  • 8:27 - 8:29
    Make sure that you
    grasps the Palm Muting
  • 8:29 - 8:33
    because it will really make
    your bends sound a lot better.
  • 8:33 - 8:35
    Now, as well as getting
    your technique right,
  • 8:35 - 8:36
    the other really important thing is
  • 8:36 - 8:38
    making sure that you, "bend the right note"
  • 8:38 - 8:41
    So what I want to do now is go through
    the Minor Pentatonic Scale
  • 8:41 - 8:43
    and the Blues Hybrid Scale
  • 8:43 - 8:47
    and show you which are
    the "cool" notes to bend, and why.
  • 8:47 - 8:50
    So we are just going to be looking
    at the thinnest three strings.
  • 8:50 - 8:52
    Because they are the ones
    that we most commonly bend on.
  • 8:52 - 8:54
    It is possible to bend
    on these thicker ones
  • 8:54 - 8:57
    but it's not what you want
    to start off with.
  • 8:57 - 9:00
    So, starting off we have
    the A Minor Pentatonic Scale
  • 9:00 - 9:02
    on the thinnest three strings,
    and the Fifth Fret
  • 9:02 - 9:07
    . . .
  • 9:07 - 9:10
    Now, if we look at this
    top note that we were playing
  • 9:10 - 9:11
    this is the note C.
  • 9:11 - 9:13
    And regularly,
    you will probably find that
  • 9:13 - 9:14
    you are playing that
    with your little finger.
  • 9:14 - 9:17
    . . .
  • 9:17 - 9:21
    But with String Bending,
    we never ever do it with our little finger.
  • 9:21 - 9:22
    There are a couple of exceptions
  • 9:22 - 9:25
    but 99% of guitar players,
    bend with their Third Finger.
  • 9:25 - 9:26
    It's a lot stronger.
  • 9:26 - 9:28
    The little finger is too short
    and too weak
  • 9:28 - 9:29
    and doesn't give you a good bend.
  • 9:29 - 9:32
    So, get into the habit of using
    your Third Finger for the bend.
  • 9:32 - 9:36
    Even if it means
    that you have to re-finger the scale.
  • 9:36 - 9:37
    But you have already learned that,
  • 9:37 - 9:40
    "It is not important, what fingers play
    the notes for the scale."
  • 9:40 - 9:42
    So we can use Third Finger (plays)
  • 9:42 - 9:45
    for all of those notes.
  • 9:45 - 9:47
    . . .
  • 9:47 - 9:49
    If you don't believe me,
    check out Eric Clapton.
  • 9:49 - 9:51
    Watch some videos
    of guitar players you like
  • 9:51 - 9:52
    and notice that
  • 9:52 - 9:58
    99 times out of 100,
    they will be using their Third Finger for the bend.
  • 9:58 - 9:59
    Now, this top note here:
  • 9:59 - 10:02
    This note can be bent One Tone
  • 10:02 - 10:03
    which is Two Frets.
  • 10:03 - 10:07
    . . .
  • 10:07 - 10:09
    Now we haven't done the next scale pattern
  • 10:09 - 10:10
    but this note, D
  • 10:10 - 10:12
    is the next note is note in
    the A Minor Pentatonic Scale
  • 10:12 - 10:14
    if we start moving up the neck.
  • 10:14 - 10:17
    So that's why this note
    must be bent a Tone.
  • 10:17 - 10:18
    Bending a Semi-Tone to here:
  • 10:18 - 10:22
    This isn't a good scale note.
    As it tends to sound sour.
  • 10:22 - 10:23
    So, if you are going to bend
    the Eight Fret
  • 10:23 - 10:25
    Make sure you bend it One Tone.
  • 10:25 - 10:26
    It's worth practising.
  • 10:26 - 10:31
    . . .
  • 10:31 - 10:36
    . . .
  • 10:36 - 10:37
    Now also on the thinnest string;
  • 10:37 - 10:39
    you will remember from our Hybrid Scale
  • 10:39 - 10:45
    . . .
  • 10:45 - 10:45
    We've got here
  • 10:45 - 10:46
    the Seventh Fret.
  • 10:46 - 10:48
    Now the next note up in the scale
  • 10:48 - 10:50
    . . .
  • 10:50 - 10:51
    was the Eight Fret.
  • 10:51 - 10:53
    So what you want to
    practise off the Seventh Fret
  • 10:53 - 10:55
    is a Semi-Tone bend.
  • 10:55 - 10:56
    It's a one step bend.
  • 10:56 - 10:57
    you would practise the following (plays)
  • 10:57 - 11:04
    . . .
  • 11:04 - 11:06
    So, for the Eight Fret,
    it should be a Tone.
  • 11:06 - 11:10
    . . .
  • 11:10 - 11:12
    And for the Seventh Fret,
    it should be a Semi-Tone.
  • 11:12 - 11:16
    . . .
  • 11:16 - 11:20
    Now, exactly the same thing happens
    on the Second String
  • 11:20 - 11:20
    This note here:
  • 11:20 - 11:21
    The note G.
  • 11:21 - 11:22
    Bends up a Tone.
  • 11:22 - 11:24
    . . .
  • 11:24 - 11:24
    which is
  • 11:24 - 11:25
    (plays)
  • 11:25 - 11:26
    the same as that note actually.
  • 11:26 - 11:30
    . . .
  • 11:30 - 11:32
    So we have our Tone off the Eight Fret.
  • 11:32 - 11:35
    . . .
  • 11:35 - 11:36
    And then we've got a Semi-Tone off the Seventh Fret.
  • 11:36 - 11:38
    . . .
  • 11:38 - 11:39
    Because it's bending to that note
  • 11:39 - 11:54
    . . .
  • 11:54 - 11:56
    And it's exactly the same
    on the Third String.
  • 11:56 - 12:00
    . . .
  • 12:00 - 12:03
    On the Third String,
    it's just slightly different, in that
  • 12:03 - 12:05
    on the Seventh Fret,
    we can bend a Tone
  • 12:05 - 12:10
    . . .
  • 12:10 - 12:11
    because it bends to this note
  • 12:11 - 12:12
    which is the note E.
  • 12:12 - 12:15
    . . .
  • 12:15 - 12:17
    You can hear that it's the same note.
  • 12:17 - 12:17
    E
  • 12:17 - 12:21
    (plays and hums)
  • 12:21 - 12:22
    You can even play them both at the
    same time, if you like.
  • 12:22 - 12:25
    . . .
  • 12:25 - 12:29
    So, it's important from
    the Seventh Fret on the Third String,
  • 12:29 - 12:30
    you can bend a Tone.
  • 12:30 - 12:33
    The difference is that you can also bend a Semi-Tone.
  • 12:33 - 12:34
    . . .
  • 12:34 - 12:35
    Because you've got the "Blue"
  • 12:35 - 12:39
    . . .
  • 12:39 - 12:42
    So here from the Seventh Fret
    you can bend a Tone
  • 12:42 - 12:45
    or a Semi-Tone.
  • 12:45 - 12:46
    So you should practice a Tone.
  • 12:46 - 12:53
    . . .
  • 12:53 - 12:55
    or a Semi-Tone.
  • 12:55 - 13:02
    . . .
  • 13:02 - 13:03
    Now what I would recommend
    that you start doing is
  • 13:03 - 13:07
    exploring all of those bends
    when you improvise.
  • 13:07 - 13:08
    If you put a backing track on,
  • 13:08 - 13:11
    just start to experiment with all of those
    different things.
  • 13:11 - 13:12
    You've got the bend
  • 13:12 - 13:28
    . . .
  • 13:28 - 13:29
    Lot's of fun!
  • 13:31 - 13:32
    Practising your bending technique
  • 13:32 - 13:35
    and making sure that you've got
    the technique exactly right
  • 13:35 - 13:36
    is very important.
  • 13:36 - 13:37
    But also very important
  • 13:37 - 13:40
    is listening to the original Blues Masters,
    do their string bending
  • 13:40 - 13:44
    so you know what it is
    that your string bending, should sound like.
  • 13:44 - 13:47
    Now, probably my favourite string bender
    of all time is
  • 13:47 - 13:48
    Albert King
  • 13:48 - 13:50
    He's got a wonderful string bend.
  • 13:50 - 13:52
    He does them really slow,
    and really fast.
  • 13:52 - 13:54
    Lots of vibrato; no vibrato.
  • 13:54 - 13:56
    So if you do not have any Albert King,
  • 13:56 - 13:58
    I would highly recommend that you get
    either his album:
  • 13:58 - 14:01
    "King Albert" or "Born Under a Bad Sun"
  • 14:01 - 14:05
    Both of those albums have loads and loads of fantastic guitar playing
  • 14:05 - 14:07
    and are also a really good source of getting
  • 14:07 - 14:08
    traditional blues licks.
  • 14:08 - 14:12
    And listening to what
    really good string bending sounds like.
  • 14:12 - 14:16
    So the first thing that you should be doing is practising the exercise:
  • 14:16 - 14:18
    So playing a note (plays)
  • 14:18 - 14:19
    Playing it a semi-tone higher (plays)
  • 14:19 - 14:21
    Back (plays)
  • 14:21 - 14:23
    and then doing the bend (plays)
  • 14:23 - 14:26
    That's to really help make sure that you get you pitching good -
  • 14:26 - 14:27
    that you are bending in-tune.
  • 14:27 - 14:31
    . . .
  • 14:31 - 14:32
    and a tone
  • 14:32 - 14:35
    . . .
  • 14:35 - 14:38
    So, practise that
    on all three of the thinner strings.
  • 14:38 - 14:39
    That's exercise one.
  • 14:39 - 14:41
    It's really really important,
  • 14:41 - 14:42
    and it's one that you should
    do for a little while until
  • 14:42 - 14:47
    you feel totally confident
    that you've got your bending in-tune.
  • 14:47 - 14:48
    Once you've conquered that,
  • 14:48 - 14:49
    the next really important thing
  • 14:49 - 14:51
    is to actually put it into practise.
  • 14:51 - 14:52
    So, put a backing track on
  • 14:52 - 14:55
    and just jam along;
    experimenting with your string bending.
  • 14:55 - 14:59
    You'll find that it brings a whole life
    to your guitar playing
  • 14:59 - 15:01
    that you might not have discovered before.
  • 15:01 - 15:05
    When you are improvising,
    it just gives something really expressive.
  • 15:05 - 15:08
    There's something magical about string bending once you get it
  • 15:08 - 15:10
    but it doesn't really have
    that magical feeling
  • 15:10 - 15:12
    until you have gotten the technique correct.
  • 15:12 - 15:14
    So, plenty of practise on the technique.
  • 15:14 - 15:15
    Then plenty of practise using it
  • 15:15 - 15:17
    and I will see you for another lesson
    some time really soon.
  • 15:17 - 15:18
    take care of yourself.
  • 15:18 - 15:19
    bye
