String Pulls

(and why you probably don't need to do them)

A string pull is a technique where you bend a note by stretching the string with your left ring finger behind the bar. I've had some questions about this technique, so I thought I'd provide my honest take on it. I'll show you how it's done, and a few handy tricks you can do with it, but at the end of the day, I think this technique is unnecessary and a recipe for playing out of tune!
