hammer on and pull offs.

On a hammer on lets say you play the third fret on a string. If the tab says 3h5 that means you play the 3rd fret, and while it is ringing, you "hammer down" onto the fifth fret with another finger so it contrinues to ring.

Pull offs are just the opposite

h stands for hammer on. which is when you hit the first note and quickly press your finger on the next one without picking the second note.

p is for pull off. which is when you hit the first note and lift that finger up fast so you can hear the second note. it is just the opposite of a hammer on

With pull offs, don't just pick up your finger off the string, actually pull the string a tiny bit with it, so it's like a mini-pluck with your fretting hand finger. That way it will ring out.

Yes, that's right. Don't lift your pull-off finger straight up off the fretboard; go diagonally a bit, so the end of your finger catches the string and, like ^you said, almost plucks the string.
Otherwise it doesn't sound near as good... or loud.
