How many of you can do a bend and a pull pretty much at the same time?

I kind of pull down then pull off and it sounds very cool.

Wouldn't that just be a downward bend quickly followed by a release (pull-off) to an open string?

Some folks consider bends only in an upward (toward the player), pushed direction. A bend is a bend whether it's pushed or pulled. Then you are just releasing ( the pull off). So I wouldn't think it's at the same time. Unless you are doing the bend on ONE string and the pull off on a different string.

And it's a bit difficult to tell exactly what it was your hands were doing in the video.

It did sound good, though.:winkthumb:

6string, Andy S has it right of what I'm doing.

That's pretty much what I'm doing because it sounds like its going slightly out of key then right back in for an unusual sound.

Oh okay, because it was in the playing slide thread I thought you were talking about doing something with the slide.

i don't do YouTube so i can't say what you were doing was this or that.
your description reminds me of Knopfler.
in Sultans of Swing he employs this technique of bending and releasing while in bend.
before i found this out about Mark, i thought i was the only one who did such.
silly me

Hi ST_JO, What form of music does Knopfler play?

Or should I just do a youtube search?

Ah I remember that 6string, But back in the day I was in to groups like Ac/Dc Poison, motley Crew and so on. But if you watch Fred Mcdowell he does it too.
