String Bending Vibrato

Justinguitar.com on Technique

Possibly one of the questions I get asked the most is how to add vibrato to a bend. It can be a bit tricky to get going and sound good, but if you are using a good bending technique then it should not pose too much of a problem if you follow these tips!

The Lesson

The big idea here is just to let the string pressure do the work!

Once you have done the bend, let the string pressure push the string back down and then push it back up. Once you have worked on this a bit you should be able add the vibrato to your bends.

Kinda easy huh? Well it will take some work, but if you bend with a good technique then you should not find it too hard.
