STRIKE ONCE HAMMER MANY!!!!!
This is a lick with the patented "Strike Once, Hammer Many" technique. All that means is that you strike an open string, and then you hammer on several notes. So from one pick strike, you get a total of 4 notes!!! This lick is on two strings, so with 2 strikes you get 8 notes!! Keeping a solid palm mute makes it sound like you are picking all of the notes. So you can get some serious shred crazy speed on this while only picking a couple of notes!!!


*NOTE: Keep it smooth and under control. If you find you are losing control, slow down just a pinch. If you want to add one take where you are pushing the edge for speed and get a bit wonky, that's perfectly fine.

BINGO!!! This is a very handy lick for working ones hammer on technique. Try it on ALL the strings for extra work and extra fun!!! You can also play entire scales this way. For example, A MINOR, just play the 3 note per string version of A minor and use an open string on low E all the way to High E. or use some permutation of E minor and do the same approach. I've worked this in to various solos and it works great! It turns the E Minor 3 note per string in to an E minor four note per string!!!
You just..
LEVELED UP!!!!!
