Everytime I do a bend or vibrato or pull off or just playing in general my finger slips off the string. Why does this happen?

Uh I practice almost everyday for hours for 1 year now. I doubt that's it

Ya maybe it's the strings being old that's the problem.

i could show you why but only in person to describe it sorry

if u put ur four (fretting) fingers on a flat surface and slide ur finger along with out moving ur wrist

just extending them and keep them on the surface (easy stuff)

u gotta kind do that motion in ur playing

ur probably havent slowed down and really focused on it

i can imagine ur bending then when stop ur fingers arnt pressing hard enough so u slip


this doesnt make sense to read but hey ho

It's not the strings... practice more dude. I can guarantee you that if I tried it I could bend it easily.

Yeah like they say, practice a lot, but be careful how you practice man.

You wanna make sure your technique is right. Practice in a way that you make sure you're focused on what you're doing, so it isn't mindless practice. You learn better technique.

...It could simply be that you practice to the point of your hands sweating...*shrug*

Things like that make me laugh and know you're like 12.

To TS:
You probably aren't applying enough pressure to the strings, or you just have a WIDE bend. Which, the 2nd probably isn't the case.

you gotta kinda get behind the string, if your just trying to get traction with your finger its not gonna work, if you get on the opposite side of the string of the direction your bending it wont slip off as much.

you just gotta find a balance that works for you

I highly doubt you've practiced bending and vibrato everyday or hours for a year, thats what you need to practice more, not guitar in general.
