  • Hey GMC!

    Let's look at hammer-ons! If you're interested in learning to play with some killer legato, this is the place to start. Hammer-ons are the first half of legato. We'll progress from absolute beginner to more advanced beginner through this lesson and learn some fun licks along the way!

    Tonality:

    We'll be using the diatonic scale of Bb major

    Chord progression:

    Bb, Cm, Bb/D, Eb (x4)
    and then ending on Bb

    Equipment and Sound: I used a Telecaster with single coil pickups on the middle position (both pickups), a Fulldrive 2 for a volume boost and very little gain added, and a Fender Blues Jr NOS amp. I mic'd it with an AKG D320B microphone and recorded into Garageband. I added a little reverb, delay, and compression after it had been recorded in Garageband.

    Tuning:
    A 440 Standard
