Sometimes box shapes can be a bit limiting because they offer just two notes per string. What if you want to do hammer-ons or pull-offs for more than two notes? You have to be on the same string in order to pull that off (pardon the pun!).

Don’t let fingering limitations direct what you can and cannot play – where there is a will, there is a way! It all has to do with the best fingering, as well as being fit when it comes to hammer-on and pull-off technique! It pays off to check this one out. Then come up with a few cool riffs!
