Two-fret bend. It's exactly what it sounds like. You're taking a note and you're bending it to the next note two frets higher. You can do this anywhere on the neck. It's usually done on the higher strings but you can do it on the lower strings as well. A good place to start is our familiar minor pentatonic scale. So if I take the third string and I play the higher note, that's this note D, two frets higher I have this note. I also have the same note here. I might plant that sound in my brain because I want to get that pitch. I don't want to over bend. I don't want to under bend. Right?

So I want to take the note and bend it to the next, like this. Here's the note. It's just like that. If I go to the next string, I have this note on the pentatonic scale. The higher note is this. Two frets higher I have this, which can also be played here. I'm going to bend that note two frets to the next note. On the first string, I can bend this note. I can also move up the neck to the next position and bend this note two frets higher to this note. Now I'm going to play each one of these with full volume and distortion.

Those are two-fret bends.
