Hey there, this lesson will cover combining the Hammer- On and Pull- Off technique. We have covered the two separate techniques but combining them makes things even more interesting. By combining the two techniques we can use scales to create flurries of ascending and descending melodies that are not quite as predictable as either just ascending or descending phrases.
Exercise 1- Combined Hammer- On and Pull- Off A Minor Pentatonic Run
Exercise 2- A Aeolian Hammer- On and Pull- Off Run
This lick is very similar to something Paul Gilbert would play with the addition of his classic use of bends thrown in there. If this lick does not come to you easy because of the mixed up triplet and eight note rhythms then do not despair as you can experiment by taking the notes and making your own licks and finger exercises.
Exercise 3- Descending C Ionian Hammer- On and Pull- Off Run
