It's like when you fret one string as normal then fret the string above at a higher note and bend that note white simultaneously playing the other note without bending it. I use it a lot when I practice improvising or I'm thinking of cool ideas for licks because I love the way it sounds and I'm just wondering if there is a name for it other than just 'bend'? Sorry if this is a nooby questions

Yeah, you are practically bending the note (which is a fifth, relatively to the higher note) into a third. That's the theory of why it sounds so cool.

No.
You're bending the note up to the same pitch as the higher note, which is why it's called a unison.
The higher pitched note is a major 2nd to start with before the bend, and you bend the lower note up to the same pitch.

Ibanez J.Custom, Prestiges, RG8, SR5 bass etc

Oh, I thought I saw this tab:

I'm damn tired, just got from the training, I don't even know why the heck did I reply when that guy up there already solved the thing
Anyway, you are right. My bad.
