How to do it:
String bending is a popular technique used in modern guitar styles because it gives the player an additional way to express themselves. Without the ability to bend notes, the guitar would sound much more static like a traditional piano. Musical instruments that provide a means of bending notes usually sound more voice like.
Strike a freted note and then bend the string with your finger to raise the pitch of the note.
