Definition for: Bending

Forcefully pushing the strings upwards or downwards to raise the pitch produced. This works by stretching out the string and therefore raising the pitch, and is shown by a "b" symbol or a curved arc extended from the note in tablature and notation. If you have to raise the pitch up to a specific note, that will also usually be shown.
