In this Quick Licks we strike an open string and then hammer on using two adjacent strings. This feels very odd at first. It's tricky on purpose to help train your hands to be able to play this that they don't think they can play. the shape on the left hand is a basic power chord. You are just hammering it on one note at a time instead of striking both strings at once.

Take 1 for scrutiny Sarge. I think I need more pinky power but that will take time to develop beyond the timescale of Quick Licks.

Thats it!!!! it's a bit rough around the edges, but yes. That is the lick! You may notice that if feels very very awkward on the hand. The left hand in particular. We are striking an open string and then doing two hammer ons on adjacent strings. So we have string traverse with any pick action going on so it's really a great way to work on isolating the hands. Each hand is it's own world, in a manner of speaking. It's crucial that one be able to separate the hands so that each one can do it's own thing without being reliant on the other one. That's the purpose of a LOT of these drills. Trying to separate the hand I can see you are making really good progress in this area. This lick could use a bit of refinement so feel free to give it another go if you have the bandwidth. However, you've got this so it's plenty good enough to,.......
