Hammer ons and pull offs are crucial guitar techniques when learning how to play lead guitar. This guitar technique has a more legato sound to it as there is no pick attack for the notes that are hammer on or pulled off. You see it used in all music styles, but it is most popular in rock, blues and country. Quite often you will see rock and blues guitarists playing “one handed” hammer ons and pull offs to add flashy guitar tricks to their stage show.
The brief video below is taken from eMedia’s Interactive Rock Guitar guitar lesson software and demonstrates how to play hammer ons and pull offs.
