Bends 4

Animated Bends 4 tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This exercise is from the Core Skills section on Bends.

You will come across many ActionTabs with bends, especially combined with other techniques, such as slides and pull offs etc. So it is important to make sure that your fingers are strong enough to do sustained bends.

In this exercise we play and hold each bend for a while before returning / releasing the string. Holding the bends will help you develop strength. We do this for each finger, so only support your weaker fingers with other fingers from behind if you really need to. Keep practicing so your fingers develop the right amount of power and control needed to perform bends comfortably.

Once you can play them, do these bends on each string and in each direction. Doing slower, controlled bends is a good way to warm up and develop finger strength.
