Albert King - Left hand bending mania

Signature guitar, the flying V. Signature technique, the mad bends. 

Velvet Bulldozer
As every retro Blues guitarist Albert was in the cotton plantations, growing up there singing gospels. 192cm tall and about 250lbs. When i first heard of Albert, i'm amazed with his bends, upside down on the fretboard, he got a lot of space to bend the high E string cause he is playing the other way and not restringing it.
A must see videos include the one with SRV, cause SRV is a big fan of Albert. Finally SRV's dream come true that day.
