Guitar bends are a technique that adds a lot of expression to your solos as they simulate the human voice.

In this article, I cover the basic technique of guitar bends (string bending) and have a few TAB examples.
This is the last of the guitar techniques that use hammer-ons and pull-offs (HOPO). The guitar tapping technique involves tapping or hammering on any note of a string using the middle finger of your picking hand. Then you pull off to a note you are holding with your fretting hand. After that, you would pull off to a second fretted note and maybe hammer-on to a 4th note. If you are interested, then continue reading and try the guitar TAB for this guitar technique.
This is the first article involving guitar techniques involving two notes, and it involves the most common techniques.
