In this tutorial we will learn 3 whammy bar tricks to spice up your blues playing technique.

If you haven't already seen it, you might benefit from this earlier tutorial that covered mechanical, technical aspects of the vibrato bar:

Whammy Bar from the Beginning

Once you got your system to function properly and stay in tune, the two most important aspects of using the vibrato bar are: pitch and rhythm.

1. You should be aware of the pitch you are attempting to achieve with the bar.
2. You should use the bar in a way that is rhythmically integrated with the music you are playing.

In this tutorial we will learn to apply these ideas to blues style guitar!
