yeah. I see tabs where there's a double stop that's bent a half or full step, and I just don't get it. I can do it a fourth step, but i can't push it past that. I'm not talking about just one fret of a double step. I'm talking about both.

You obviously need more hand/finger strength. You should be able to bend one string with one finger at least a whole step. Once you can do that, bending two strings with two fingers shouldn't be a problem.

I normally play my double stops with one finger pressing down both frets. should I use two seperate fingers in those cases?

besides finger-strength, the problem lies in bending both notes equally.. this is a lot easier with 2 fingers than with 1, and you can apply it to more note combinations

I do it with two fingers but I am sure it is possible with one, just practice a lot and listen very carefully

yeah, that's why I was confused. It's easy though with two fingers. Thanks for the help.
