When you think about bending and vibrato, chances are one of your favorite guitar players comes to mind. For me, it was always Angus Young. That bend he hits during the climax of the Back in Black solo still sends shivers up my spine. No matter what kind of vibrato you like, these tips will help you master the technique and mold it to your preference. Out of all the techniques… legato, alternate picking, trilling, sweep-picking, tapping... it seems our guitar minds always gravitate toward the flashier moves on the fretboard. Bending is often overlooked in development, but is actually the most crucial to master if you want to be a great guitar player, especially in the blues.
