Sentimental Journey > A Section Breakdown

Here's the "A" section to Sentimental Journey. Sing this melodic line before you begin playing. This will fix it in your mind and you will anticipate the correct notes as you play. You should be able to hit the bends and half bends right on pitch. If you can't do that you'll need to work on getting control of the bends. Good luck and have fun.

Topics and/or subjects covered in this lesson:

Hi Preston ... Mike here.  I edit and publish Jerry's lessons.  I'm not quite sure I understand the issue.  

Can you tell me a bit more about the issue you are seeing so we can get it fixed?

Thanks for being a part of Sonic Junction.
