We start by talking about basic hand positioning so you can see what exactly your fret hand should be doing during a bend. We then move on to a little exercise that you can practice that has you focus on bending the string in tune.
Start slow if you have never done any bending before, because it can be quite tough on your finger tips in the beginning. If you are practicing on an acoustic it will probably take a little longer and probably be more uncomfortable but it is worth it!!
Practice bends consistently but not constantly. You can blister up your finger tips pretty quick if you are not careful.
So have fun practicing one of the most important techniques that you will ever learn on the guitar, but don't hurt yourself. 🙂
