Hey UUers! This week on Uke Minutes ...

Uke Minutes 47 - How to Bend a Note (http://ukuleleunderground.com/2009/05/23/uke-minutes-47-how-to-bend-a-note/) (or "Bends and Pre-bends")

Not to be confused with decompression sickness ("the bends") or stipends for clergymen ("prebends"), this week's episode includes a nice little note-bending trick to help you to bend those especially tough white strings that everybody uses.

Check it out, and if you've got questions, comments, tips, tricks, ideas about bending - post them below!

(Extra points to the person who can guess what song the background beat was modeled after!). Hope your day is terrific!

Thanks for the great vid, I've been playing for years and never really thought much about bends. It wasn't until you pointed it out, Aldrine, that I noticed I support my ring finger with the others when bending! Yes, it turns out you know me better than I know myself...Later, Rock
