The Blues Bend

By Darren DeFranco


Hey everybody!

Today we’re going to learn one of the most rockin/bluesin’ riffs of all time! This tasty lick has been used by everyone from Chuck Berry, David Gilmore, Jimmy Page and more. It’s a little awkward because you have to barre your first finger across the top two strings while bending, but it’s still doable.

So let’s get truckin’ on this bend!


Work this riff in the various ways Eric talked about using different pentatonic scales. As always start slow!
