EX­AM­PLES HAM­MER AND HOLD

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY -

Head­ing for the up­per reaches of the fret­board, this ham­mer-on ex­er­cise takes a three-notes-per-string ap­proach, with sus­tained notes to help you ‘re­group’ for the next phrase. Aim to keep the fret­ting fin­gers as near to 90 de­grees to the string as you can (within rea­son) for cleaner, more con­sis­tent re­sults. There is a lit­tle bit of whammy bar go­ing on here, but it’s not es­sen­tial.
