Bends with Two Notes (with What the World Will Never Take)

Here's one little trick I like to do, and also features in the What Will Never Take solo. The idea here is to bend one string, while holding on to another. You can play the notes one after another, or together, as shown in the first part of the video.



The tabs for the two notes are:
-12--------------12-------12----------
-12b14--or-12b14----12b14----(repeat)-
--------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
--------------------------------------

This is applied in the solo in the second half:
-12----12----12----------
-12b14-12b14-12b14r12-10-
-------------------------
-------------------------
-------------------------
-------------------------

------------------------------12-------12-
-----10-12-12b14b12-10--12b14----12b14----
-10---------------------------------------
------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------

--------------
-14r12-10-12--
--------------
--------------
--------------
--------------

Try to apply it with some blues licks, or the pentatonic scale. You can also use it in place of an exciting bend at the peak of a solo.

To use it on the B and G strings, play:
--------------------------------------
-12--------------12-------12----------
-11b13--or-11b13----11b13----(repeat)-
--------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
