Watching this video (and deciding that while it's a very pretty pedal, it's one I don't need), the chap does this little thing (twice) starting at 1:50 where he bends a note and another one comes in at unison. Or something. Sounds a bit queasy - like he's playing two notes the same, but slightly off. I thought I'd mastered every way possible of doing this, but clearly not. So what's he doing, shortscale (Fran? I'm looking at you...) and how do I do it?

Basically its a unison bend.

The phrase is based around a pentatonic idea bends down to a #6 (so a dorian pentatonic):

---------------------------------------------------------------5--8-
--------------------------------------------------5--*7---8---------
----------------------------------------5---7-----------------------
------------------------*4---5---7---------------------------------
----------------5---7-----------------------------------------------
-------5---8--------------------------------------------------------

However this particular lick is based in the next position of the scale.

You strike the upper note, then the lower note is pre-bent to the same pitch. The pre-bent note is then released.

Sorry I wasn't too clear. Basically the upper note (8th fret on B) is struck first, followed by a note played on the 11th fret of the G - that is bent up to sound the note at the 12th fret. This bent note is then released.

Check the video I made.
