Hopoff 8

Animated Hopoff 8 tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This exercise is from the Core Skills section on the Hammer On / Pull Off Combination.

In the last exercise we encountered the trill - a fast repetitive hammer on / pull off. In this exercise we play a short succession of trills across 3 strings.

Notice that almost all the work is done by your fretboard fingers. You need only pick the very first note of each string as you move to it to begin the trill.

Doing fast trills like this can be used effectively in solos - by picking notes from scales that occur close together (on the same string) and applying trills (fast hammer / pull off combos)!

Once you can do a proper fast trill, you will find that other fast techniques start to come together for you too. This isn't just an issue of confidence, it's because your fingers are learning to move with both power and speed in a controlled way!

Keep at it and work at getting as quick as you can hear in the normal speed audio.
