    So i'm "trying" to learn the bass solo to orion but i cant get the bends right... i'm learning it from guitar pro and i dont really know what 1½ bend full bend is etc..

    I guess a full bend is when you bend so high that you get the higher tone next to the tone you bend or what?
     
  2. - A 1/2 bend is the same tone as the next fret up.
    - A full bend (1 bend) is the same tone as two frets up (a whole step)
    - A 1 1/2 bend is... hard to do (same sound as 3 frets up, or a minor third).
    Hope this helps. Good luck.
