I think bending is overrated on guitar because:
1 - It has been used in the same way for decades with the same old first box of the minor pentatonic.
2 - It is restrictive, because we can bend 1 to 4 semi-tones only and can't make those big expressive interval jumps like singers do to gain more expressiveness.
In this video, I will show you which technique I like using instead, why I think it's even more expressive than bends, and I'll give you some exercises to get started using this technique with more precision.
