    I have wanted to get something posted using the B & G Bender guitar that Forrest Lee Jr. made for me. But it took me a while to get the hang of moving those benders around at the same time!
    Song is moderately paced so that the bending had time to ring out.
    Amp is a Dr. Z Rx/ES - between the Z and the VooDoo bridge pickup I did not need to use any overdrive pedals. Only pedals used were a delay and a compressor.

    What a big sound, you're making me want to change amps. Sounds like you're starting to get a hold of the double bender. Nice guitar! love at first strum.

    FREAKIN' AWESOME Kevin!!!....What a serious nice, and in all aspects topnotch production. If US makes a double-dip you just double-bend and get rich on that. R.E.S.P.E.C.T

    That's one cool tune and great playing too! Sounds like it could've come off a Dixie Dreggs record. (a good thing!!)

    I had a PM request for the notes played between 1:08 and 1:18, so as long as I have written them out, maybe someone else can use them:
    B C C# E C# C B A C# B A B A G# G F# A G F# G F# E D D# E A G E A G E D# D C C# A(on third string) G C#(5th string)
    D D# E G(Open G string) E D# D C C# D(Open D string) C# C A(Open A string) then the run starts up from the low E string.

    Oh, and thanks for all the nice comments!

    This is something very, very special. Excellent writing and playing. It's not just a bunch of random notes but something with a hook too. That last part with all the benders working is just killer. Great song.
    Question - is it easier to use the B Bender or the G Bender? Those motions seem almost contrary to each other. I don't know which would be easier.
