Hmm well the intro ended up a little bizarre ph34r.gif but the actual mini lesson was inspired by a discussion we had in the video chat. I hope it can be useful for those of you struggling with bending/vibrato/tone!

Warning - contains immature humour:

I should add one of these: laugh.gif

Or maybe even better: tongue.gif

Very nice lesson Kris. About a year ago, I took some time to learn bending and could never figure out how to keep everything so quiet and yet get such a powerful sound out of it. After a while though, it just came naturally and is very much like yours (it may have started out by my mimicing how people placed their fingers like the forefinger not knowing why they do it). I am not if I use my thumb the way you do but I will have to check it out.
