Hammer-ons and pull-offs start with a need for finger strength above all else. Speed and dexterity will come, but to execute this technique well all our fingers must be adapt to this concept and strength should be balanced throughout your hand. This exercise involves working your fingers, hammering on and pulling off across the fretboard one finger at a time. This is similar to the way that Jimi Hendrix plays "trills", then utilizing all your fingers working together in series.
