"Bender Style Guitar" & "Advanced Bender Style Guitar "
by Dan Schafer
Armed with an impressive array of stringender-equipped guitars, Schafer breaks down classic bender licks fret by fret and move by move. In his first video he explains the history of bender hardware and the role of such innovators as Boomer Castleman and Clarence White, and delivers an inspired demonstration of Parsons/White, Glaser, Hipshot and Bigsby systems. Schafer reveals the differences between strap-activated, hip-operated and palm-pedal devices as he tours a cool collection of B-bender moves. The second tape covers triclder B-bender licks and adds a G-bender to the mix. Combining the B- and G-benders turns a 6-string into a virtual pedal steel.
There's no accompanying booklet, so the licks aren't musically notated or tabbed Instead, Schafer describes each move in exhaustive detail ("Put your first finger on the second string, third fret, and push the bender while holding your third finger on the first string, 5th fret.. . "). This is probably ideal for rank beginners, but more accomplished players looking for bender ideas will be frustrated by the instruction's glacial pace. On the upside, the enthusiastic Schafer delivers accurate interpretations of hooks by Clarence White, Jimmy Olander and other bender greats. If you're considering a jump to bender guitar, these videos will open your eyes to its amazing possibilities.
