Anybody interested in tradings some electric specific licks that are best played on single course 4 or 5 string electric where string bends are possible.

For example here are some things I like to do on electric:

Bend the 2nd up to a major or minor third:
key of E....bend 3rd string 4th fret up

Bend the flat seven up to the tonic:
key of E.....bend 2nd string 5th fret up to the E note

Pedal steel type lick over a specific chord,
example C chord :

---8---- # # # # # # # #-----8-----
---5---- bend this to # -----7-----
-------- # # # # # # # #-----------
-------- # # # # # # # #-----------
the trick is keep holding that C on the top string

Niles had a bunch of cool licks and tricks in his Electric manolin books but they are out of print http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif

I like the bend from six to flat seven a lot (E to F in the key of G.) Lots of tension, while being quick and easy...
