Just wondering how everyone else deals with this. Every time i go for a full bend say 15th fret on the B string the strings above G and D always dig into the skin around my nails and cuts the crap out of 'em.

Need to know if when bending up should you kinda of 'tuck' the upper strings under your finger rather than let 'em run over your nail.

Help much appricated

What gauge strings are you using?

And I think I tuck them under my finger, if I'm thinking the same thing you are.

Oh, well than it shouldn't be that much of a problem with just 9's.

How long have you been playing?

Yea it shouldn't be a problem with 9's. I think your fingers aren't strong enough yet to force those strings upward, that's why the pressure of the strings hurt your fingers. Keep practising, you'll find a way around it.

There you go. I played acoustic very lazily for a while, and then had been playing electric slightly more seriously for 9 months before I tried playing Hangar 18. The slides in the main riff murdered my index finger, but now I can do anything my hands and they don't even feel it.
