i fig id do some weaknesses i have to get better them. Mine is pull ofs and skipping strings to hit notes and stuff. This is not metal oriented. This is in the style of blues, rock. What are some good exercises i can do to get them down?

index and ring finger 5 and 7
index and pinky 5 and 8
middle and ring 6 and 7

make sure you're actually doing a ''pull off'' and not just lifting your finger.

And don't think of it as a weakness, just something you want to learn to do properly!
Oh yeah.

This pattern cycled, any string, all hammer-ons and pull-offs.

-5-6-5-7-5-8-6-7-6-8-7-8-

This will excercise every possible combination of fingers for both hammer-ons and pull-offs.

let the pulling off finger downwards motion can get more effective volume
compared to just lifting the finger above away

I believe this is a good excersize, but you shouldn't restrict yourself to just these frets and the order of what fingers you are using.
I would suggest playing through scales as you normally would, but instead of picking every note, substitute with a hammer on (going up the scale) or pull off (going down the scale). Since you are interested in blues rock you should watch some vids of Stevie Ray Vaughan, he was great at hammer ons and pull offs, not to mention bends. Blues pentatonics are great for practicing these techniques and become very useful when you improvise solos for this style of music.
