Speed Tech 2

Animated Speed Tech 2 tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This exercise is from the Core Skills section on developing Speed Techniques.

Staying with the hammer on lick from the previous exercise, now let's work at moving the lick between positions without missing a beat.

Assuming you have nailed the previous lick, this one should come quickly. It is just a case of shifting positions. Play the lick as before and after 4 cycles, move up 2 frets. Play there at fret 9 for another 4 cycles, and then return down to fret 7. Repeat. The picking (up / down) should remain consistent throughout.

This will be a good test of whether or not you have mastered the ability to move your first finger whilst the 3rd finger is hammering. The only way to cleanly shift between positions is all down to that first finger being free to move during the hammer on.
