Hammer-ons and pull-offs are one of those things you can use more or less right away, regardless of how fast or slowly you're able to do them. But at the same time there are endless possibilities with these if you get really fast, so in this lesson I'll show you how to work up your hammer-on and pull-off speed using the metronome.

You'll eventually be using hammer-ons and pull-offs without even thinking about it. It just becomes a habit over time to not pick every note, and once you get really comfortable with them it may even seem easier to hammer-on and pull-off to the notes than to pick them all.

But before you can get to that point you need to work up the muscle memory and the coordination it requires, and I hope these examples have provided some good motivation to really get in there and work on it. Because hammer-ons and pull-offs are an incredibly valuable tool that's used all the time in rock lead guitar playing and almost any other style of music where guitars are involved. Have fun with it, and I'll see you in the next tutorial!
