levy addressed this...he said that one goal was to be able to play every note 
as similar to all the other notes as possible, with as little coloration as 
possible.  he also pointed out that overbends (and traditional bends) ~do~ 
sound different from unbent notes, and you should also strive to be able exploit 
these differences.  
the goal is to control the technique, not have the technique control you.
easier typed that done.
