Twigslet please stay motivated while training the bends. It really is frustrating at some points.
Mitch calls the needed time you need for taming the bend the “ugly hours”. It took me quite a while to get a feel for bending at all and lots more to control it.
For me as a rookie the Hohner Special 20 was too hard to bend. I turned to a Lee Oskar which worked much better for me. And if you turn to a lower tuning (e.g. A major) bends can come more easy as well.
