is there a particular type of string that is easy to bend and fret. on my fender its really easy but on my gibson , particularly the e and b strings are hard to bend. however the gibson strings are at least 20 yrs old hahaha. ya so i just need some help here on what i can do to bend and fret strings really easy especially on a gibson using standard tuning.
buy new strings and grow some arm muscles?
EB-Super Slinkies....for standard.....
try changing strings.. not rocket science.
lol, im not even that noob
Just get a new string, test one out starting from 9s,10s,11s or hybrids and see which do you prefer most. You cant compare a 20 year old string and the bending action over a new string, its old and probably rusted and blackened, rust also may cause the bends to go harder coz it makes the string sharper and heavier, not to mention it could tear ur fingers or just snap anytime.
