Pull off/hammer on to open string on more than 1 string

I seem to be having trouble with this kind of licks, like in Back in Black

-3p0------------
------3p0-------
-----------2brp0
------------------
------------------
------------------

Or ...And justice for all

---------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
-0h5h7-----------------------------
---------0h5h7-------------------
------------------0h5h7---0h2h3
------------------------------------

I make almost all the strings i play ring, and if i mute with my left hand i cant do the motion to hit the string hard enough to make the ahmmer on/pull off sound. What am i doing wrong?

You need to right hand mute the upper strings, have ur palm muting EAD strings in And justice for all etc. Then when you are doing 0h5h7 on G u move palm so you can play that thing on D. You'll get used to it.

Not hammering with enough power or in the right place within the frets. You should be hammering as close to the fret as you can so if you're hammering the 5th fret you should be as far up the fingerboard as possible without going in to the 6th fret space.

I suspect, however, that what you're really lacking is just practice. Make sure your technique is alright (relaxed, thumb in the middle of the neck, fingers parallel to the frets) and if you still can't do it it's just a question of repeating the motion until you can.

Two reasons i would say

1. you require lot of practice.
2. other is your guitar tone.

I don't honestly believe it would be the second of those, while bad tone would mask the sound of what you're doing you should still be able to tell whether you're doing it right or not; the sound itself still comes out.
