I was just wondering if there's any way to make my bends last longer. I'm trying to record a cover of Europa by Santana, but when he does that long bend (about 0:54 in), it lasts for a good few seconds. While I know he does it by standing in that one "sweet spot" with the feedback, I was just wondering if there's any way I could duplicate that to (some) extent. Thanks!
Dont bend too far and have the string your bending hit another one..
Slowly bend up and slowly go back down, so the string is constantly vibrating

I love how he's holding a '59 Les Paul and a cigarette in the same hand.

I'm using a Deluxe Strat, and the song requires me to bend really really high... any way i could do it without feedback?

So last year, I put some potatoes in this jar and forgot about them. Today, I found them, and when I opened the jar, there is a puddle at the bottom and it smells like alcohol. If I drink this, do you think I will die, or have I made potato vodka?
Work on your vibrato, 99% of good sustain is a strong vibrato technique.
