I"m not sure if this has an official name or not. I'm going to try to explain it the best i can for example

take this

3rd string_____________________10____________10_
2nd string_______9hammer-11__________9-11_________________
really quickly though, so that it all blend's together, really smooth


i'm not sure what it's called but it's used in many of the song's i listen to..for example the solo to free bird has a lot of it. What is the name of it? is their a name to it?

Thanks!!

Not even a technique - just hammer-ons followed by another note on an adjacent string.

Some might call it a pedal tone, but that about all i can think of.

A hammer on is a technique, and I'm pretty sure playing a note is a technique (basic I know), but you use techniques to play the guitar.

Anyhow. TS, I don't think there is a single technique name that covers what you've tabbed out.

When a single phrase is repeated many times it's called ostinato. Not sure if that was the aspect of it that you were getting at.
