Yeah...just wondering...I mean my pedal has a pretty ace tuner that just tells you the note your playing, and then how far you are from it...

So I'm training my ear and how far my fingers are supposed to go...and it's a lot easier than any other methods i've seen.

Who else does this?

Sometimes, if my bending sounds off, I use a tuner to "recalibrate" myself.

Not me.
I just play the note I'm trying to bend to, sing it and bend to my voice. Then I just recheck to make sure I did it right.

Dude, I think I would know, Trivium invented Thrash, Metallica are lucky they got as far as they did piggy-backing off of Trivium's signature style.

so if you're bending the 22nd fret on high E, you can sing that high?

Thats a very good idea I had never thought of that. Now I can find out how bad I really am at it.

good idea iv never head that before...

i usually just go for the bend and if it sound sour i make small adjustments in practice to get the muscle memory for it and go from there

i might try to start doing this though
#13
def a good idea...i do agree that bends are bout what you feel and just gotta go for it, sometimes itll be slightly off

I'm quite talented. :0
But for those high ones, I just forget the singing part and remember the pitch.

In case you didn't read the whole thing, he said he's training his ear by doing this. For all we know, he could be bending the note and trying to get it by ear and then checking the tuner to see how close he got it. It sounds like a good idea to me. I might try that some time.

I do believe this is what TS means.
Well, that's what I would do.

No, never heard of that. Good idea though.


I hadn't either until someone at my local shop told me about it, he said he used to get the string as close to the green light as he could and thats how he learned to bend in tune.

I've heard of people using a tuner to help them with singing, but not bending...
