Hammer-On and Pull-Off Series
In this series we start with basic hammer-on, pull-off technique and work from there to put together complex hammer-on and pull-off licks, step-by-step. Each segment prepares you for the next. The series progresses as follows:
Part 1 – The basic technique of how to perform a hammer on, pull-off along with how to integrate the whammy bar and what it sounds like with the jam track.
Part 2 – Introducing 3 note hammer-pull combination using 3 fingers.
Part 3 – Learning to stretch the 4th finger and use it for four different licks to develop flexibility, strength and speed.
Part 4 – Covers the pentatonic scale, vertically, and shows how to apply hammers and pulls to it.
Part 5 – Covers the pentatonic scale, horizontally on one string and what a simple hammer-pull exercise looks and sounds like when moved in the note pattern.
Part 6 – Introduces a sliding lick to apply to the scale learned in part 5.
Part 7 – Learn hammer and pull licks that use two strings.
Part 8 – Move the licks that you learned in part 7 around the neck.
Part 9 – Adds an extra picked note on an adjacent string to introduce a lick that goes beyond just hammers and pulls.
Part 10 – Applies the lick learned in part 9 to the pentatonic scale (vertical) to create a scale sequence.
