    Sorry for this - but it does underscore....

    The importance of knowing
    Where your bend is going....

    (hey I'm a Poe it and didn't blow it)

    Just imagine this guy saying "do as I say and not as I do..."
    It's thankfully short.

    i've begun to include chromatic pitch bends as a part of my practice routine.

    after tuning up I start at the lowest possible notes i can pitch bend with and work my way up one note at a time and then back down.

    i've also started to work on bending through the scales
    i borrowed the idea from Johnny Hiland.
