Basically what the topic says.

Im having trouble when I play the first part of Back In Black, and it tells you to bend 2 up to 4, then come back down to 2 on the 3rd string. Any tips on bending that particular note?

While on the topic of Back in Black, I have another question. During the segment when you bend a whole step from 2 to 4 and then down, how do you play it faster, or make it sound smoother like Angus Young does?

Thanks

What tab you even using? The only bend is in the chorus and it is a 1/4 of a bend. Just slightly like in I Love Rock 'n' Roll by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. You don't need to bend behind the neck. Thats only for open strings.

It sounds like you know what you are doing but I will try to make it clearer for you if you truly don't understand.

Play this
e--3p0------- use middle finger for this
b-------3p0---- and this then,
g-------------2--2bend so it matches the 4 fret (don't play the 4) then smoothly bring the string back to its original position then I like to pull off to -0- (use index finger for this)

The fingers you use in this really determines how fluid it is and this is how I play it so it is easy for me. Anyway good luck.

Use two fingers, use your wrist for the main motion of the bend.


do this

or, if u still cant bend
play the thing on the 4th string, 7th fret, and bend it to 9th

PS: The 3rd string is one of the easiest to bend.
Easy meaning, you only have to bend it a little to alter the pitch a lot.
