Hello Everyone ..
i have a question .... my guitar string was always too tight
i am using 10-46 for standard turning now ...
my guitar bridge is Gibson SG style ..
my high e sting was super tight now... i only can bend the strings about 1/2...
i want to know ...what can i do now ???
what can i do to make the strings loose ...
and i don't want the guitar action to high because of my playing style ..

thank you very much ....

Well, if you've had them for a long while, they'll do that. So just get some new strings and be sure to stretch them when putting them on.

If they're not, then I'm honestly not too sure about that.
Maybe try using 9 gauges instead of 10. Those are looser and easier to bend.

Use lighter strings or tune down. Or just keep at it and build your finger strength up.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

Lowering action makes it easier to bend, not the other way around.

Try 9s.

try 9s.
also make sure when bending your not pressing down hard on the fretboard, you'll create a lot of friction that way.
and try to bend using a twist motion from your hand not expanding your fingers, watch videos to understand what I'm saying.

This sounds more like a technique issues...

- Absolutely, this is very common early on. Be sure to have your thumb over the top of the neck and use your wrist to twist using the thumb as a pivot.
