ok so i can play machine gun live by hendrix but i need to know how he keeps the bend held so long when the solo starts... he bends 17 and u can hear it for like 15 seconds, when i do it it lasts for like 3-4 seconds

since you don't have a guitar that sustains as well you can do either (or both) of two things: lower your action or give the string a little vibrato while its bent

use 3 marshall 100 watt super leads all hooked up to each other and run your strat through a univibe and fuz face.

The fuzz face will give you lots of extra sustain, and just use some feedback. Feedback means standing close to a cranked amp.

Compressor, sustainer, and better gear.

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.
