Sorry guys, I feel like this question has been asked so many times over and over again. But I need help with the classic "The Middle" solo. I can't get it to sound like it, how exactly do you play the hammer on and pull offs? How hard of a solo is it by the way?

I wouldn't call it a classic...but honestly, practice practice practice. I have trouble playing other people's solos sometimes because I haven't had the same playing journey as them. Because of that I frequently put my own spin while still getting the majority of the notes exactly the same.

The solo isn't that hard honestly, you'll get it! Just keep practicing and don't try to be their guitar player. Be yourself and create your own interpretation of the solo.
