I've got a problem when I bend the string, if I bend up or down, more often than not, when I release the bend, really fast, or even remotly fast, one of the strings above it (or below, depending on the string I bend) rings with the released note, and throws off the sound, is it just something I'm doing wrong? Or is it that I have a crappy guitar? Can you help me out?
You know you're a guitarest when you'd rather lose a foot than a finger.

Yeah, I get that too. Might be the way our guitars action is set up. not sure though. anyone who can clear things up for us?

Not totally on topic but a question I've had for a while, are you supposed to bend up or down? which is better? Is it a personal preference?

Umm, what kind of a guitar is it. If its acoustic it's Normal if it's electric, either its a crappy guitar or the action is weird

Well, both personal preference and common sense. if youre bending the low e and a string, you usually bend towards the floor, as youll just fly off the fret board. opposite with the high e and b string. bend towards the ceiling or the same thing will happen.

How do you mute them without killing the other strings, and if your doing a fast solo do you just do the same thing? And the crappy guitar would explain it. It's electric by the way. And I think the action is okay, all the strings are like the exact height off the fretboard.
