In the clip, Nassie begins with the chord shapes for the left hand and slowly builds the tapping rhythms of the song.

Posted on September 4th, 2015 by MDuffy

Guthrie Govan Charvel

Ever wonder what the best way is to flaunt your skills as a guitarist to an opposing piano player?

The great Guthrie Govan might just have the answer. In a new master class for Guitarist magazine, Govan ran through some of the best techniques for string-bending, which should surely confound those who tickle the ivories around you.

“I think there’s something about string-bending that’s uniquely awesome when you play it through the guitar,” Govan said in the 10-minute clip. “You can use your string-bending prowess to taunt the piano players of the world because try as they might, they can’t do it at all. And it’s a very nuanced, subtle thing.”

While wielding one of his own signature Charvel models with a flame maple top, Govan began with the minor pentatonic scale and finds all the ways one can bend a string within that box before moving on.
