In this lesson we'll use hammer-ons to spice up our rhythm guitar. This is an effective technique at any tempo, however, as with any new technique, learn and practice at a slower tempo at first.

Notice the picking hand uses the same basic stroke that we learned in "boom-chick" strumming. The basic difference in this method of playing lies in the fretboard hand. Remember to arch your fingers high and really use velocity, not muscle to execute the hammer-on that revs up each chord in this exercise.
