Ex­am­ple BEN HARPER STYLE

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

There is more legato here, this time on the sec­ond and third strings. As with the ear­lier phrases en­sure you are work­ing on ham­mer-on and pull-off tech­niques so you can per­fect th­ese lines. Here is an ex­am­ple of the bluesy dou­ble-stop phrases that Harper of­ten em­ploys in his play­ing, and that work so well in drop D tun­ing.

When play­ing the fi­nal phrase here, make sure you ham­mer-on and pull-off re­ally cleanly so you don’t mute the open fifth string in be­tween the phrases – this needs to ring out to fill the sound out.
