This is a very challenging technique and style that is the next natural step from last week's lesson, Harmonizing With Open Strings. This again, is a style I picked up largely from my late friend, the great Danny Gatton, and if you spend any time listening to some of his improvisations you’ll be sure to pick up on some of these banjo-like runs.

This is a little known approach within slide guitar playing, yet it’s one of the most attractive. I’ve always felt that lead guitarists in general spend too much time concentrating on the higher strings and positions, while neglecting some of the equally cool, if not cooler, lower positions available to them.

This is a technique I’ve long been known for, and I sort of picked it up by listening to the late, great Clarence White. When I was just a kid loving and learning from White’s playing on the Byrds’ records, I was unaware that he had invented the B-string “bender,” which is a mechanical string-pulling device that had been built into his guitar. Instead, I started emulating this effect by bending the strings with my fingers, while still recreating the mechanical pedal steel-like sound.

This is one of the most fun styles to both play and teach, as its infectious “groove” orientation is a great combination of right and left hand dampening. It’s also a style where the right hand has to really think like a drummer with a relentless drive, while the left hand does its best to block, dampen and allow the sound of certain key notes in key spots.

Pre-bends are a very expressive and fairly advanced style and technique, mainly because the fingers must, in a way, develop "presets" that will enable them to know just how far to bend a string silently. This will enable you to play a lick with the note or notes already bent, so they can "spill down," usually at the start of a phrase, or in the middle of one.
