Combining hammer ons and pull offs on guitar is extremely common, so we have this section devoted to learning about it here in the Core Skills series. Before reading this section please make sure that you know and understand what hammer ons and pull offs are from the previous 2 sections!!

Once you do either technique, combining hammers and pull offs is very easy - which is always good news. If you are familiar with this combination you can easily recognise it by ear and in ActionTabs. It is also a vital pre-requisite for Fingertapping, an extremely cool technique, discussed in our next Core Skills section.
