In this exercise we use three different techniques on three strings – regular picking on the B string, hybrid picking on the high E string, and hammer-ons from nowhere on the G string. (The latter means: just hammer on the string without any previous picking on this string.)

So in the TAB, the legends are the following:

P = Picking
H = Hybrid picking (with right hand 2. finger)
n = hammer-on from nowhere

Practice it slowly, it is fairly easy on a slow tempo. Make sure that each string sounds at an approx. same volume, i.e. the hybrid picking and the hammer-ons should be equally loud as the regular picking.

(Note: See my previous exercise on hybrid picking, if you are new to this technique:
