A minor Pentatonic Scale

Bends BENDS involve playing a note and then bending the string, either a half or whole step, to another pitch. Always bend to a specific pitch. Normally, you would use your third or fourth finger (pinky) to bend with the other fingers helping.

= Notes that are good to bend.

Major Scale Bending Exercise

Hammer-ons A HAMMER-ON is a technique with which you pick the first note, then by hitting your fretting finger hard on the fretboard you get the second note to sound without picking it.

Pull-offs A PULL-OFF is a technique where you pick the first note then pull off your fretting finger so that the remaining fretted note sounds without picking it.

Tapping TAPPING is a technique combining hammer-ons and pull-offs. It also incorporates reaching over with your picking hand to hammer on a note on the fretboard.
