I`m from Europe (Croatia), so sorry because of my bad english...
I have problems when I bend strings on my electric guitar! Somehow my finger always get in touch with strings above on the fret and it makes terrible noise. What should I do?

Don't worry, your English isn't bad at all. Try bending with three fingers. You should bend the string with your ring finger(I think), then use the 2 fingers behind it(middle and index), to push up the string also.
Be cool.

when i bend up on a string, i push my finger under the string above it, and i can bend back without the other string making any noise by being careful and letting it go back slowly as i'm bending back... that's worded a bit weird, so if you need me to clarify, i will

EDIT: keep your finger under the string above until it's back in place

Yes you`re right about that, I came to the same conclusion.....but when I play the string above gets mixed with other string above that one! So then the two strings above the string I bend are making noise by touching one another!! I can avoid that when I play some soft and slow solos like November rain solo, but some hard stuff can sound horrible just because of that!

I know it`s all in practice, but you must know how to practice, right?

thanks man!!
