In this quick licks we use our LEFT HAND ONLY to create a speedy Hammer on / Pull of Lick. You can use any sort of mute that you like. I'm using the cross over method, which looks flashy but is really just the same as using a fret wrap. You can mute at the bridge too if you like. Whatever works for you. The key here is to NOT PICK at all. To just use the power of your fingers to Hammer on and pull off. You may need to add a bit more gain than usual for this one. That's perfectly fine ) If you can't play this lick at all, then you are only about half a player at this point. Ideally the left hand should be strong enough to make the PICK a tone choice, not a required method of striking. For some folks, this type of lick seems IMPOSSIBLE. Rest assured, it's not impossible. Just takes a pinch of effort smile.gif

Don't let this lick throw you off. Anyone can play this and play it at speed with a bit of repetition.
