I'm trying to record a track for my band tonight and in one part there's a half step bend on the high e string on the 18th fret. I'm trying to the the bend some vibrato, but my finger keeps hitting the G string and it makes a horrid scraping sound. I've tried different fingers, not bending as much, etc but the extra noise is still there. Any suggestions on how to fix my technique for this?
Kind of unorthodox, but have you tried using your middle finger to the G string up towards the lower strings and away from the higher strings to give you more space to bend?
