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 style is equally suited to electric as well as acoustic playing, but clearly owes its origins to the acoustic players of early country music. We will work strongly on the right-hand patterns that help to establish the foundation needed to execute these licks properly, and it’s a great workout in “jumping” strings in a flatpick style.

This is a style I have always explored, but when my late, great friend Danny Gatton and I recorded “Tequila” for my eighth album, I really had a chance to stretch out with this style and learn from Danny what he chose to do within this unique technique!

This is an exciting “one-man band” kind of rhythm style, and will take some major right-hand discipline to execute properly. But when you do, you’ll find this to be an extremely exciting and rewarding way to play.

A natural extension of the previous lesson, the "banjo rolls" I'm talking about are very strict right-hand and left-hand positions that simulate the "roll" of banjo licks, while still remaining truly guitar oriented. A great tool, they also can help with dampening, and learning to create patterns on the fly.
