Pinky Hammer Ons

Ok, so I've ran into some problems hammering on with my pinky. My hands are small, so that means my pinky is tiny. Whenever I try to hammer on, it's just a weak little thud hding from the other strings playing. Will this problem go away with practice? I can hammer on fine with any other finger though.

Yes, the problem will go with practice. Try this horrible sounding excercise


Use your first finger for 5th fret, second for 6th, ring for 7th & pinky for 8th.

Hurts like a bitch & sounds horrible but it really does help develop your pinky strength.

Also do this:


Edit: My hands are tiny, fingers stubby & fat but I manage fine. Just takes practice.
