    This is an easy pedal steel lick that is NOT the "standard lick" so many players seem to use, and often over use. The key to getting pedal steel licks to sound right on a guitar is to have very accurate bends. Check this lick out and try it! The guitar is a 1965 Telecaster.

    Nice little lesson...

    To expand on this for people that don't know... when bending the G and B strings together the G string will bend 1 tone and the B string will bend 1/2 tone. This happens naturally without any extra thought or technique to make it happen. That's the theory that makes this pedal steel lick work as it does.

    ^^^ This ^^^ is very important!
