Lazy Sandy Blues
This is the first blues that I've published, so I hope you like it. It's fairly slow and lazy
I've been doing a lot of work recently on mastering some string bending. I can still only do it around the middle part of the fretboard, where there is least resistance, and still only small bends.
This is something that I started making up while I was practicing these bends.
There aren't many and they aren't too difficult so,
if like me your new to bending give it a whirl.
There are two parts.
Part one on this page and part two on the next page. They can be played seperately, or put together.
For the bend in measure 2, fret on the 5th fret and bend by 1 semi-tone (half step) and then back again.
The bend in measure 11 is a reverse bend, in this case bend the string using the 7th fret just before striking it, then bring it back into position.
Thankyou to John Jones for asking
I'd like to thank Bruce Maag, for giving me inspiration and help,
not only with learning how to bend strings, but with putting them into the composer as well.
