Finally, the left hand fingers can also initiate sound on their own by techniques called hammer-ons and pull-offs. A hammer-on involves lifting one (or more) of your left hand fingers high enough to then literally "hammer" it down onto the string (right behind a fret!) in order to create a sounding note. A pull-off involves lifting one (or more) of your left hand fingers off a fretted string literally with a slight "pulling" motion in order to get the string to create a sounding note. Often, hammer-ons and pull-offs are used immediately after one another, creating a trill.
With enough practice, all these things become the automatic motions that form the basis of a guitarist's technique.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
