Watch the 1/4 Step Bends online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 60 Electric Guitar Techniques You MUST Know
¼ step bends AKA ¼ step inflections are subtle pitch modulations that can be applied anywhere, anytime. To me, it's right up there with vibrato when it comes to setting you apart from the rest. Vibrato is the signature, while ¼ step bends are the character. It's the soul. A developed ¼ step inflection technique will catapult your playing to that of a seasoned six-string sage in no time.
