Scrapper's bends in the intro to "Springtime Blues" are typical for him, but those bends in conjunction with the bass are really something.

Hi all,
I ran into some more "sick" bends yesterday, in Tommy Johnson's "Canned Heat Blues".  They're in the coda, where he's walking a little two-note shape down the first and second strings and bending the second string.  They have a real "acid reflux" quality to them.
All best,
Johnm

Hi all,
A favorite sick bend:  Bob Campbell's bend of the third fret of the third string in "Starvation Farm Blues"--and he keeps coming back to it!
All best,
Johnm

I don't know if this example is sick or fit, but I've been spending a lot of time lately working on Garfield Aker's take on Rollin' and Tumblin' -- "Dough Roller Blues."

The bends are short but ... but ... what's a good word to use here ... forceful? noticeable? Words fail me, but the bends make the song.
