QUICK LICKS #34 Left Hand Tapping / Hammering
In this piece we are using ONLY OUR LEFT HAND to create all of the sound. This means you will need to use your finger power to create the strikes for all the notes. So put your guitar pick down, use your picking hand to mute all the strings as i'm doing in the video. You will use your fretting hand to strike every single note. If you lack finger power, this drill will show you where your weak spots are and give you a chance to fix them.

Being able to play this lick will open up an entire range of abilities that you didn't know you even had. Once you get the hang of it, wads of licks that require left hand power will seem like child's play. It's well worth it to get a handle on this type of thing. It can elevate your playing in ways you never thought possible.

*Make sure to watch the vid!.

*NOTE: Try the same right hand muting trick that I'm using here.

This is a stand alone drill/lick. It's meant to be played by itself as it's not really a scale. It's for working up your finger power on your fretting hand!
