Beck's best friend is the tremolo arm (or as said in America, "whammy bar"). His use of the bar is so seamless that it's difficult to hear when he does and does not use it sometimes it's so subtle. Pay close attention to pre-bends and the tuning of the bends. Play with me during this lesson to help get tuning and timing down. Even though this lesson has no fast picking, it's one of the most difficult techniques to master on the instrument.
