Hi all!

I'm currently on "John Frusciante Style Lesson" (part3) and I have a bit of trouble bending. I bend using my three fingers (the ring finger is the one I'm fretting). But as I bend, the other strings above interfere, and make an unwanted sound. Any way around this?
Also when finishing the bend with vibrato, do I carry on the vibrato using my three fingers aswell? If I do this the same thing happens... the strings above make a sound. blink.gif

Hi Nicholas! It's ok that you are using three fingers to bend but you have to use the palm of your right hand to mute the string that you are not playing. In this way you'll avoid undesired noises.
