I am reading the tab for Californication, and it says-


But how can you Hold down the fourth fret, hammer on 6th, then hammer on 4th again?
Does it mean-


probably means hammer, then pull off. in theory, its the same thing, but in reverse, so maybe its like, backwards hammer.

its possible to hammer from 6 to 4... but probably means 4h6p4
I play guitar.
Tabs are made by people...they are not infallible so they may well have typos in them. If it doesn't seem to make sense, it may well be simply because it really doesn't make sense
well i read it as ---4h6p4--- anyway

But yeah that is what he meant

like zhilla said, it's just a typo.
