Open strings lend themselves well to hammering-on and pulling-off. This technique is not equally applicable in all keys but work very well in some very "rock guitar" keys like E minor, A minor, G major/minor, C major and likewise is adaptable to many other keys based upon which open strings you choose. This concept allows you to hammer-on and pull-off almost anywhere on the guitar neck. This example depicts a bluesy rock lick you might hear in the style of Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, in the key of G minor.
