Hey Guys,

I posted in another thread about an issue I have with my bending. I just can't seem to use my wrist/forearm and have always relied on my fingers to bend. I know this is incorrect and less accurate than wrist bending. I've watched a lot of tutorial videos but I just can't seem to get it. Zaphod and some others requested that I post a video of myself bending, so here's a short clip. Let me know if you need any more..I'm using my webcam so angles are rough but I can see what I can do

To be fair, I use a mix of finger bending and forearm bending. I have no problems bending whatsoever. IMO, it's a technique best done when emulating someone you like, then record a soundclip of you practicing, and then use that to fine tune until you got it.

You need to turn your wrist anti-clockwise as you bend,Your fingers don't need to do as much work as they're doing.Vibrato should be more of a shaking motion moving your wrist left and right rather than moving your fingers up and down.

Vibrato comes mostly from the wrist. I linked some of his stuff before but I'll link it again..

Probably one of the best people you could ever analyze when it comes to vibrato. Notice he always always uses his wrist. Very few people will ever become as accomplished with vibrato as this guy has. Blows my mind every time i watch him.

as i said in the other thread, flatten your fingers a bit more
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
