Hammer-ons and pull-offs have been a staple technique in rock guitar for many years by countless players. The basic concept is fairly simple in theory, a hammer-on is most simply put: hammering your finger onto the fret without picking it, creating a tone. The pull-off is the equal and opposite. Instead of being hammered, the fretted note is "pulled off" of the fret, allowing the next note in series to ring out in tandem.
