Bend the string behind the nut. Naturally, this doesn't work with a locking nut.

Just push down on the string behind the nut. Behind the nut means beyond the first fret, near the string post. Just push down on that part of string, and there you go -> you just bended an open string!

Why not just bend the same note on a different fret?

unless you have a seven string, you cant get any lower than a low E...****tard

play the notes, hold your guitar at the body, then push the headstock a little, it does a half bend, but this only works on a long note, its not really something you can just drop in riff unless its pretty slow

Ok, so what if you wanted to bend that low string on a 7 string guitar. Ya, good job there buddy. If you want to be a dick, go to the pit, do not do that here.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

The easiest way is to use a vibrato bar. If you don't have one you can press on the string behind the nut or to bend it down, you can bend the neck.

You're using the exact same logic as him, except he was talking about a standard guitar and you're talking about a 7-string.

Also on some guitars you can do the same thing behind the bridge, which is a little easier to do quickly, I find.

Someone might have mentioned that already if I didn't read accurately enough...

funny, i thought you could tune guitars down =\

and just bend behind the net, or if you have a whammy bar you can use that and mute the other strings

or you can bend the neck

^^ but that would just involve tuning down with the tuning peg, technically it isn't bending

but yeah, that's another way you could do it. although it does have its disadvantage, as you could obviously just put your string out of tune.

AND SO I WATCH YOU FROM AFAR
