Blues Bending Technique

In this lesson, I want to show you a really interesting blues bending technique that I’ve been using a lot lately. You’ll hear SRV using this technique in the Sky is Crying.

This lesson features the VL Effects Greentone pedal for the overdrive, a 1966 Fender Vibrolux, and a Weber Mini Mass attenuator.

If you listen closely you can hear me using this technique quite a bit in my Practicing Like a Performance Video.


  1. Hi John
    Watching you and extracts from your dvds for years now and find them very useful.
    Are you never tempted to do some original stuff though, I mean , do you want to spend the rest of your life and career copying others ? Try it at least, eh ? Go on John, do an original………you can do it, you certainly have numerous techniques at this stage.

    1. I’ve written, produced and recorded numerous songs throughout the years.
