Lesson 28.3 – Bending With Double Stops

A very cool effect that’s done with double stops is the double stop bend. You can bend both notes at the same time, or you can do a unison bend (Lesson 15).

When doing a unison bend you have a few ways to incorporate the technique. You can bring the bent note up to the other note’s pitch, or only part way in order to create an out of tune sound. Similarly, you can bend the note very slowly or very quickly.
