Minor Third Bends by Peter Vogl is a free guitar lesson that will teach you how to play a minor third bend. Most bends played on a guitar are either half step bends (that sound one fret higher) or whole step bends (that sound two frets higher). A Minor Third Bend sounds like it's three frets higher than where it's being played. This is a harder bend to play, but with the correct technique, it can be accomplished. To learn a solo that incoporates this type of bend, check out Peter's All Along the Watchtower premium lessons.
