Q

Do you use a " B bender" device similar to page?
If so what exactly does this do?

Ah... the B Bender. Well, Page used this on "All of My Love." It's a tricky thing. There's a mechanism that is actually cut into the back of the guitar and attached through the strap lock so that when you push down on the top of the guitar via the strap, it bends only the b string. It was invented so that the country guys could get that awesome bendy sound without having to lose the chordal formation by taking your fingers off the chord in order to bend just one string. It's a bit difficult to master, but yes -- when we play that song, we use the b-bender.
