Improve Your Guitar Technique: String Bending for Beginners

For this article a short lesson on how to bend strings on the guitar. I will have a look at the double bend (bend one string while you play a second string).

First check out the riff we will use before we play the actual bend:

             C               C                  Em           Am
             
              /               /                   /              /

  E  ——8—–5—————————————————————————–

  B   ——————8——5—————————————————————

  G   ———————————-BEND FROM THIS POINT IN SEQUENCE!! ———–

  D  ——————————————————————————————-

  A  ——————————————————————————————–

  E  ——————————————————————————————–

  In this tab I did not notate the bend, I do mention where you actually bend. check out Part Two to check for details if you are not sure.

 I think, if you observe the tab, then watch both videos you should be able to get a good idea of how this particular piece works.

Here are both videos:
