I recently bought a pair of Pyramid Flatwounds (10's) which I've played before but not in a while. I'm not used to the wound "G" string anymore and how heavy it seems. I can bend it but when I do I'm always just short of the note I want to land on. The licks I use the most are Roy Nichols type licks that require bending the "G" string a lot so being able to bend it is important. I was wondering if there are any exercises that could build up my left hand strength while bending or techniques to help bend these heavier gauge strings. Thanks!
