Arlen Roth

Instructional legend Arlen Roth can bend with the best of them. Here he outdoes himself with these triple-stop tendon busters where you hold one note of a chord and bend the other two up to pitch.

“To play these licks in tune,” said Roth, “you’ll need to apply different amounts of pressure to each bent note.” He makes it sound easy, but it ain’t. It is, however, totally worth the effort.
