  • Hi GMC folks! Welcome to my new lesson about pull offs and hammering techniques!

    As you know, these two techniques are opposite, where hammering on is going up in pitch, pulling off is going down in pitch, and your fretboard finger must already be holding down the next note.

    Now, this example is more interesting because is played with fingerpicking style. If you want to practice this useful techniques, let me give you some hints: try playing things that combine multiple hammer-ons and pull-offs. One of the best ways to do this is to try playing scales - ascending with hammer-ons, and descending with pull-offs.

    Hammering onto a note, then pulling off to the original note. Repeat this as long as possible, without re-picking the string.

    This played example is Macedonian folk song "Zajdi,zajdi jasno solnce"(Set, set bright sun)..

    Since song has no rhythm ,i added backing track with Guitar on a left channel and synth on right channel so you can adjust and balance volume of each instrument.

    Chord progression : G,Cm6,C,Em,D,Am,Bm

    Enjoy it!
