the skin is being pulled out from underneath my nails and they hurt like bitchs. I love doing bends and the like but I have the feeling Im using some sort of wrong technique and its starting to get annoying!
ye dudes ryt it takes time 2 get used 2 it
and maybe ur bending to far you only want to bend to the note or pitch that u want
u probubly alredy no that but hu cares
nope it just takes awhile for your fingers to get used to it. just thank god you dont bite your nails then it hurts like hell.
do you use one finger? or more? the more fingers you use in a bend the less pressure it takes off of any one finger.

like i use my ring finger to bend, but i always support it with my middle finger.
well come to think of it I havent really been supporting my ring finger, the finger I use to bend most, with other fingers. gotta work on that I think
It's a long shot, but if your action is too high which means the string sometimes hits the gap between skin and nail, that'll damage you.
