In this lesson we’re going to look at the bending of strings on bass guitar. String bends can be pretty tough on bass because of the increased string gauges but they are possible and lots of players like Billy Sheehan, Geezer Butler and Cliff Burton have used them to good effect in both solos and bass lines

    Hey Mark. Awesome Lesson. I feel like Bends and Vibrato give a wonderful Melodic Element to your Bass Playing. But I was wondering: Guitarists and other stringed instruments like Banjo or Ukulele, you can do Unison Bends. Although they are most common on guitar. But is it possible to do Unison Bends on Bass?
