Hi folks


I find it uncomfortable to bend the high e string, and find it difficult to do full bends. I do not have any trouble bending the other strongs, in fact I find it pretty easy. I know my technique is right. I think the main problem is gripping the string right to push it into the bend.

Any tips?

usually when i get a guitar that is easier to bend on the lower strings it means that the E string and B string are switched lol.

like everything else with guitar, it's probably just a matter of time before it feels natural to you...can't think of any tips. i bend that string the same way i bend the 5th string.

as in they are in each others places? like gauge 11 on the e and 9 on the b? If thats what you mean it is definitely not that.

I think its partly because there is very little space between the string and end of the fretboard.
