To looking for ways to improve your guitar playing which is currently mediocre, here’s something that would boost up your performance. Guitar techniques are displaced if that makes your guitar playing sound good and delicious. Mastering all the guitar techniques would make you become one bad ass guitar player. Since I cannot place all the guitar techniques all at once in one article, here’s one technique that is very useful. It is called the hammer on. Together with the pull off technique they are more popularly called slurs. Hammer ons could help you create a smoother solid sound between notes. It’s like saxophone playing a flurry of notes in one blow.
Now to do a hammer on, you must first determine which two different notes you are going to include on your hammer on. For example, you have the G note on the second string and the A note on the same string. Not to do the hammer on, you should pluck the first note and produce a sound on the second note by slamming your other finger on the other note. That is the basic hammer on technique that beginners should firs practice. Once they get the hang of it they could move on to more complicated hammer ons.
