Do you want to spice up your guitar playing, especially your guitar soloing skills? Let me introduce you to some of the greatest guitar techniques that you could learn, just in case you haven’t heard about it yet. There are several dozen techniques that you could learn to create something new. You cannot do it with just staying with the old and boring single notes. So if you think that this is your way out of snoresville and you think you really have what it takes to progress, here’s an example of a guitar technique that you could use. The hammer on!
A hammer on is a technique used in guitar playing to spice up your guitar solos. It brings variety and life to the guitar solo by adding up a different method to do it. Usually, all we have to do is fret a note and pick it. To go to the next note, you fret it again and pick it again, which is kinda boring. But with the hammer on, you fret a note, pick it, and then to go to the next note, you simply hammer it with your ring finger or the any free finger in your left hand to fret the second note without having to pick it. Imagine doing it with a flurry of notes. Amazing.
