Creating the perfect sounding bend isn’t as easy as throwing your fingers on the strings and going to work. So, what is bending on a guitar, and how do we do it?

In this lesson, we’re going to show you the best guitar bending exercise that will have your guitar singing in THREE simple steps:

  1. Building Muscle Memory: Find your reference note and build your muscle memory. Get to the note you’re looking for.

2. Descending On The Bend: More muscle memory! Can you get to the right pitches without even hearing them?

3. Combine Ascending and Descending: Put it all together and listen as you can add another great lick to your arsenal.

Take your time with this one — it’s tons of fun, and you’ll be impressed with what you can achieve when adding bends to your guitar playing.

Ayla has been making waves in the world of guitar playing as a professional guitarist, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and composer, since the early age of 14. After only been playing for two years, her first YouTube video (a rendition of John Mayall’s “Hideaway”) put her on the map and kickstarted her music career. She has since been featured in Rolling Stone magazine, become a member of both the Ernie Ball and Fender family of artists, and earned various Berklee College of Music scholarships. Musically, Ayla finds great pleasure in exploring the numerous avenues available to her through various styles of music, as seen through her work with Calpurnia and Ludic.
