    Staccados during string bending?

    I've been into quite a lot of blues and pentatonic licks lately... I have seen and heard players use staccado to quickly mute their notes during string bending mostly in blues and pentatonic sequences... How do they do that? I mean, If i release the pressure off my fingers, how do I hold the bend??
    All I wanted was a gun.... And they handed me a guitar instead....

    By keeping the string bent but raising the finger a little bit.

    You are not supposed to release any pressure.

    There are three orthogonal movements: up and down the fret = fret 1 to fret 24

    Up and down vertically = string e to String E

    In and out horizontally = string in contact with Fret board to string not in contact with fret board.

    All the three are independent movements.
    You donít get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate.
