    Symbol for plucking bend while it rises?

    Does anyone know or can anyone point to an example of notation / tab symbol for this?

    To describe as best I can: Plucking the string at the start of the bend (just before bending) and repeatedly plucking the string as the bend rises until it reaches its full ascent in pitch.

    An example I can think is a bit like Joe Satriani at 0:38 on this, or at 1:59....



    I thought Jazzers would be my best bet to ask.

    Thanks

    really good question, maybe as a note under the staff / tab?
    so if i was playing a bend from A to A# on the 6th string and was tremelo picking the bending note, maybe something like:

    E:---5-b-6
    *during bend trem. pick

    Thanks for your input Haydon. It's a tricky one. I was gonna buy the official tab for the Satriani piece but they've gone up to £2.50 each on music room (from .99), so not worth it for this. In the end I used Photoshop to edit a GuitarPro PDF export to make what I think it would be:

    A tie with little lines across it ..

    Each tiny cross line is a pluck or pickstroke..

    ... along with an overarching arc indicating the bend.
