Hello, i was wondering if anyone could help me with pull offs. sad.gif
I dont really know what to do when i see a pull off, do i just remove my fiver from the string so the lower string can be heard? do i pull down and strum it with my left hand finger as im pulling off??

i have looked threw the lessons and i cant seem to find one to explain how to pull off, so i was wondering if anyone can help me here? unsure.gif

As you pull off, slightly strum the string with the finger you'r pulling off, after some practice it will be so natural for ou it would seem like you'r just lifting you'r finger off the string.

It depends on what you're playing and where on what string you are, but generally, you must be able to strum the string gently in order to get her moving. When you're practicing pullofs on slower tempos don't worry if you can't hear the string, practice to get the finger mechanics right, and as soon as you get higher up the tempo, the sound will be there too.

I think there is one of 101 lessons from Kris that show exactly the movement in close camera...
I can't remember which one... rolleyes.gif Someone else can say it?

Also, if you are finding hard time to pull off, be aware that the height of action in your guitar can have influence on that. However there is kind of compromise between pull-offing easily (low action) and bending easily (higher action). I was adjusting my action just today to find the best compromise...
