    Probably considered the B- Bender reference from Clarence.

    here's my take, a typical practice routine .

    I've done this song for decades, it's always well-received.

    I also sang this as a bedtime song to my sons, for many years

    Nice bendies :)

    getbent, blowtorch THX !

    I usually play this on Dobro with a small acoustic Americana group in town, it's not on any regular set list for the electric band but should be !

    It's really a fun one to play, allows for using any and all pull positions and whatever else we can come up with ! :)

    When I practice, I let the track run as a loop for who knows , maybe 30 or 45 minutes, over and over. it's amazing what comes out, uhhh....after a while that is !

    I'll be glad to post the track if someone wants it.


    The Benders sure are fun, they ain't Emmons Steels but still just as much fun.:)

    VERY very nice!
    Can you disclose more about your rig?
    (I'm so dumb, I was gonna imagine you were G-bending and not just B...)
    Amp? Pedals? Were you largely on the middle or neck PU position?
    Nice smooth, thick sound!

    Nice job! That song is the reason I play a b-bender. My bad use to play it, but it's been a while. I need to find a way to slip it back into the play list.

    thx , sure, here ya go

    2013 Fender Nashville B Bender, bridge pup, which is a Seymour Duncan Jerry Donahue. Just installed this pup last week.

    Recorded direct - Guitar > Sparkle drive ( really clean ) >dbx 376 channel strip preamp > Pro Tools

    the track is as simple as can be, it's actually a practice loop. Band In a Box !

    hope this helps :)

    Real nice! We play this song at every gig. Always a big hit.

    Sounds great I assume this is the Dylan song?

    I kept waiting for the singer to come in since the lyrics are brilliant in that song.

    I take a group class and we play this song but nothing like this, now I want to try some of your ideas.

    Sorry to ask Tony but I wanted to be 100% sure. Was your recording done in one live pass? Sometimes it sounds like might have been done in sections. If my ears are deceiving me please let me know. I'm going to learn this a little later on and get an idea of what you are thinking with the chords, intervals and positions you are in. I've got two Teles with benders in them (since the 90's) but I am not always using the benders as I play other styles besides country and country/rock stuff and in the last 10 years Strats have been my preferred live guitar. And thank you for sharing this with us, I love it.
