PRE-BEND: Bend the note up first then strike it. A pre-bend usually works in conjunction with a release after it. If you play a pre-bend without a release it just sounds like a normal note. When you pre-bend a note you must be good at bending, to the point of knowing how far to push the string up to sound the correct pitch without striking the note.
