If you find yourself performing string bending in less songs, be sure you keep practicing it in your spare time. The old saying is true: if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it. Make sure you continue to practice the proper technique to keep your skill level right where it should be.
String bending can be one of the most painful guitar techniques around. Utilized mostly in blues music, this technique takes a lot of effort and can cause incredible pain.
Using proper technique and continuous practice, you can toughen your fingers up, improve the technique, and be sure to make the sound you want every time. Be careful, though, because if you fall out of practice with it, it’ll start to hurt again and you might not nail the pitch you were after as well.
