Ex­am­ple2 fifth-string root legato idea

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Chops Shop -

Here’s a E sim­i­lar ap­proach, but this time us­ing a fifth-string root shape. As with the pre­vi­ous ex­er­cise, en­sure that the ham­mer- ons are con­fi­dent and pos­i­tive, and the pull- offs are played prop­erly. Specif­i­cally, the first fin­ger note needs to be fret­ted a frac­tion af­ter the higher one, and pressed down hard enough so that the ‘pulling off’ fin­ger flicks down­wards off the string onto that note. Re­mem­ber, slow and ac­cu­rate is bet­ter than fast and sloppy!
