Learn Five Tone-Bending Guitar Techniques

Awhile ago, Darrell Braun—whose videos comparing various guitar models have been a hit on this site’s pages—put out a video detailing five techniques that can help alter your tone, and expand your creativity in the process.

This times he’s demonstrating five guitar techniques that include:

  • Harmonic Touch (0:25)
  • Pick Edge Tap (1:38)
  • Behind-the-Bridge Strum (2:42)
  • Behind-the-Nut Vibrato (3:58)
  • Manual B-Bender (5:13)

Check out the clip, and when you’re done, visit Darrell’s YouTube page for more of his videos.
