Hi, I'm doing an A-level in music, and will probably do Samba Pa Ti, along with Good Times Bad Times. The piece itself is relatively easy for a grade 8 piece, though the dynamics and phrasing will take awhile to perfect, but that's ok. I am however struggling with the legato lick at 3:35-3:39. Does anyone have any advice for exercises or techniques that will help me pull it off well? It's hammer ons and pull offs on the B string, on frets 3, 5 and open.

Also, another small problem is keeping the open strings quiet when I take my fingers off of those strings. I think I saw a guide on preventing that before, but I can't find it. If anyone can help me there, it would be much appreciated .

Practice it slowly until you've perfected it, same as for anything else.
