i've been having a really hard time mastering pull-offs , i've been teaching myself and just can't get the right sound. i've been trying to learn "over the hills and far away" and all the tab for it has those pull offs( you know which ones) and i can't get that crisp sound jimmy gets , mine end up sounding muttled and not distinct. i've beed tryinr to learn the intro to "crazy on you" aswell and have run into the same problem. instead of disticnt notes they kind of mush together and fade into one another , hard to explain, i guess i'm not using the proper lingo. any help would be so awesome. thanks.

when u pull of don't just pull straight up

pull down a little to get more sound out of it

pull offs are meant to smooth the transition off notes... but make sure when you pull off you do a plucking motion and make sure the note you are pulling off to is fretted completely

so should the note i'm pulling off to be fretted in advance or should i just pick them individually?

Fretted in advance to get a smoother sound. The other finger that is pulling off must make a downward (don't know if is the right word) movement like plucking the string.

That explains a lot. I'm just a beginner, but I didn't know you had to make sure the note was fretted completely. I guess that's why it sounds bad every time I try to play stuff. Thanks dude.
