what it means is, play 3, the third fret, then bend the note sideways until it makes the same sounds as the fourth fret.
all you have to know is what the fourth fret sounds like, and you can do it easily.
if this isn't conclusive enough, im sure someone else knows better than i, hope i have helped.

yeah, you're actually going to bend the string on the fretboard so it exaggeratedly looks like


instead of a straight string like:

neither is great. The Fender is bad though, unlike the Behringer which sounds so bad that it makes you want to stab out your own eardrums with a blunt pencil . hope that was helpful.

Pull the string towards the floor and the pitch will raise. Stop bending when it sounds just like the forth fret and hold it there. Practice this often, bending in tune is an essential technique. Check the 4th fret and hold the sound of it in your mind, then bend the 3rd until you hear that note again.

Hammering on is a little easier. Play the third fret with your left hand index finger, then with some force put your second finger down onto the fourth fret without picking it. Only pick the third fret, the pressure of your second finger coming down will keep the string vibrating.
