IM new to guitar.. so i was wondering is someone can help me out.... i could do half step bends with no problem but when ever i do a full step i can get to the note ....
Is it finger strength or just not being able to find the right pitch?

place your thumb over the top of the neck, and use sort of a squeezing motion to bend the string towards the thumb...also, the spot where the side of the index finger meets the bottom of the fretboard should be used as a pivot point...the bend should come mostly from the wrist and fingers, so it may be that your fingers aren't strong enough

to increase finger strength, try trills or other repetitive patterns that utilize all of your fingers i.e. legato
