Hammer-Ons and Pull-Offs

You can really spice up a groove by adding hammer-ons and pull-offs. As always I like to practice things in a systematic fashion. Follow along as we strengthen each finger to execute these tasks. This episode will hopefully give you lots of creative ideas, too.

By the way, pull-offs and hammer-ons do for your fingers what pull-ups and push ups do for your upper body. Definitely a comprehensive and useful routine to add to your practice regimen.

You don’t want to miss today’s tip. It tells you how to enable faster playing with less effort. Following this tip will also lead to better tone as you minimize movement. What else improves? Your timing! Check it out on!

    Thank you. This was a helpful and informative video given this is a concept I’m working to wrap my head around for a new song I am learning.
