"Funny, I've seen hammer ons and pull offs, and slides notated, but not a bend. It's not terribly common in classical music, not that I've seen. It's very common to do what you're talking about while playing electric lead,…"

"Are you talking about notating specific 1/4 tone pitch bends, or using them to add a bit of flavour to a note? If it's the former, a lot of guitarists - myself included - wouldn't be comfortable with the great and hitherto uncalled-for…"

Guitar Quarter Tone Notation

Hi,This is a kinda specific but I was wondering if anyone here has any experience notating pitch bends on the guitar/if any guitarists could comment on what makes the most sense to them? I've attached an example from the score I'm working on at the moment, I've put in quarter tone markings where the guitar needs to bend, but I'm not sure if thats sufficient or if I need to include something else as well..?Thanks.See More
