Make sure black is your foreground color and white is your background color. Hit the D key.

With the Gradient Tool, work from the ends of the Black Band 1 (one at a time) while holding down the shift key. It may take you several strokes to get the gradient where you like it.

When you have it like you want it...........repeat the process for the Black Band 2 layer.

The font used in the original picture is 'Big Noodle Too' and it's not a free font.
