On the same fret. How do you do this? Use one finger? I've tried that and I can somewhat get it but my finger slips. Also is there a term for this?
#2
idk about term but i usually use my ring and pinky on the two strings im bending, feels awkward and if i use one finger ill hit both strings but only one seems to bend.
#3
using two fingers (one for each string) provides more support, so that's what I do. Using one finger for a double stop bend feels clumsy.

id say its different for everyone...for double stops, i use my index finger exclusivley. its something that with time will come naturally and you'll find your own personal, comfortable way to do it

As far as i know the only liquor that should not be stored after opened is wine, and even then it's mainly the french one. American wine usually has conservatives in it to stop this.

I do it all the time. Mostly on the B and G strings, but occasionally on the G and D. If it's really important to you that you do this, try tuning down a half-step, lowering the action, or using slightly lighter strings. It sounds to me like your fingers aren't quite strong enough to do this on whatever setup you're using.

I usually just use one finger my third finger mostly but sometimes my first two good solos to learn though might be sunshine of your love and maybe enter sandman those are the only two i can remember off the top of my head
#9
first two fingers is easiest for me.. unnecessary barring always seemed stupid to me..

i mean if within the context of a song you can't position two fingers fast enough then practice with one but if you have a choice i'd say go with 2 fingers

Use two fingers one on each string. Just push down hard and bend. It may take a little practice

The two fingers was meant to be taken as innuendo. Thus, my smiley picstory.

After reading these answers, I have to add one more comment. Using two fingers gets a different sound than using one. The one-finger, two-string bend is a blues technique which gets a slurry kind of bend. It's not real precise. Which is what makes it sound so cool. You can do a more precise bend with two fingers. But, it sounds more precise. It just depends on what you are going for. But, for me, if I want the sound of a one-finger bend, then only a one-finger bend will work. Just food for thought.
