Is it hard to do?

What do you need to do? Is it difficult? I can hear the questions swirling in your mind. Fortunately, as you will see from the lesson, it is actually fairly simple to do. The only thing you really need to do is apply pressure for your chord as you normally would and then pull the strings upward – not sliding, you stay on the same fret – to get the chord to bend and create a different sound.

A good way to practice this is to start with chords on the fifth fret of the E string (for the G scale) or the third fret on the E string (for the F scale). Of course, you are able to do this on any string or fret. When you do this, you will hear the difference immediately. It has almost a twanging sound to it, and that might remind you of country music.

This lesson for chord bending will show you just what you need to do.

You can incorporate this technique into all sorts of songs, and it is quite fun to play around with some songs that you think might not fit well with it just to see what it sounds like. It might surprise you. Watch the ukulele video lesson for chord bending and get started.
