hey just started doing ur lesson about last week and can finally get the speed down when picking all the notes instead of hammering, I have a problem when hammering on with my pinky for some reason it makes me pause when picking is it just i need practice doing it that way ? Oh and for some reason i just cant seem to get the rhythym you are using down are you using a metrenome?

Hey there smile.gif

The purpose of the workout is to make your pinky stronger and faster, and also to work on timing. If I understood correctly, you have a problem when hammering-on with pinky, it is not done in time?

If that is the case, I can recommend you to practice in very slow rhythm, note by note. Don't worry about the speed now, first need to master it in slow rhythm and then gradually increase.

I use metronome occasionally, before used it a lot and now just when have to practice something difficult. Now when I work on timing I rather do it with some drum loops smile.gif

I would be able to help you more if you upload your performance, to actually hear where's the problem.

Sound would be just fine, try recording one take with hammer-on and one without, just to hear the difference.
