This is just my opinion, I had a hard time with bends at first, what helped me a lot was not just trying to bend single notes, but bending while playing along to a CD. 1. The time frame for the bend is shorter. 2. The song your jamming to gives you a TARGET tone to hit. 3. After a few runs thru the song it seems to come almost naturally. 4. While in this practice mode you not only learn the bend, but the changes of the song and it gives you the opportunity to improvise and throw bends in elsewhere. I call this three dimensional learning. Give it a try.....
