Hey all I recently started working on my bends and Ive run into a certain lick that I have no clue how to play

Im sure youve all seen it before (its a full step bend fwiw)


E------------19---------------19-----repeats a few more times
B---19b------------19b-------

How do you guys finger/play these type of licks

I'd bend this kind of thing with index, middle, and ring finger, and then hit the e-string with the pinky.

Don't know if this is considered "correct" though.

Bend with third finger, finger note on top string with pinky? very simple

play the e string with your pinky and the b string with your third finger and use your first second and third fingers to push the bed whilst fretting the e string with your pinky

Depends on what you're playing before it mate.

You could anchor your first finger on the top 'e' whilst bending with your second. This is quite a squeeze, but some find it comfortable. Also, the bend isn't very well supported, so watch your tuning.

I'd use my third and fourth fingers - bending with the third, while anchoring my little finger on the top 'e'.

If you support the bend with your wrist, watch you're not also bending the static top 'e' note.

Hope it helps dude!

Bend with your ring finger, hit the note on the high E with your pinkie. Easy.
I have more fun than normal people are allowed to have.

Ring finger on 2nd string, pinky on 1st. Bend away.

Edit: Wow, I'm actually kind of surprised everyone else bends the same way I do.

I bend with my middle finger, and have my index on the E string.

Thanks guys I figured that would be the way to do it. Just having trouble keeping my pinky under my ring finger, it kinda wants to sit on the next fret up.
