I'm trying to learn some Tenacious D but alot of their songs have pullofs and stuff during chords, so does anyone have any advice on how I can do this without messing up the chord

I find these quite hard too, and have been playing for a year! You've just got to get all your fingers quite strong, as it's easy to pull off the first and third fingers.. but not your fourth.

just start doing basic ones, then with time youll get faster and can do it with bigger chords

It has nothing to do with strong fingers, it's all about relaxing them.

Or right? I'm learning a song at the moment where you hammer on and pull off between the first and fourth frets (and open) and I thought I'd need to build stregnth in my little finger.

Make up a riff in a scale using a lot of ring-pinky work. That will help. Also try bending with your pinky to strengthen it.
To test the strength of your pinky, do a trill between ring and pinky.

There's also a lesson on U-G.com here, Powering Up Your Pinky

you have to strengthen your fingers before you can relax them and still get the result you want.

Under the Bridge is quite a good song for this IMO, so maybe try learning that.

Apparently they're easier to do if you play with barre chords where you use your thumb to barre the route, although I personally play them with the standard barre chord shape.

Best chord to practice this is from d to dsus4.
