I am having a big time struggle trying to bend guitar strings. The problem is that my fingertips are hard from playing acoustic guitar so whenever i try to bend a string in my electric guitar i end up flicking another string accidently due to my hard fingertips.

  • Use an emery board (nail file) to remove a little bit of your callous. Go gently at first until you know from experience how much and how hard to file. That's the main thing I want to tell you. However, as a minor additional note -- dishwashing softens callouses. – aparente001 Aug 18 '15 at 19:56
