The Goal: Playing String Bends

The way we connect our notes on the guitar is called “articulation.” We have a few different choices and one of those choices is called the String Bend.

The Pull-Off is played by following these steps:

  • Press the string down with the left-hand finger.
  • Pick the string with the right hand.
  • Maintain pressure as you push the string upward or downward until reaching the desired tone.
  • Keep in mind that the further you push the string the higher the note is raised from it’s original pitch.
