Just keep useing it for any chords that spread 4 frets. I have always used my pinky, started playing mostly acoustic. Many of the songs I played while growing up needed all four fingers for some of the chords and pull offs.

Well I could give you some exercises but what exactly are you having trouble with on the hammer-ons? Where do you keep your pinky while playing normally? Arched over the fretboard, stuck out away from it, or curled underneath it? When you have trouble is it beause you can't get it to the next note quickly enough or because its too hard to stretch. Tell us some of this stuff about your pinky. Lol that sound weird haha.

i have to specify a little more... suppose you were to strike two strings at once, like the opening riff of beast of burden, and you needed to hammer on with your pinky, its pretty hard with it that close. any further than 3 frets away from my index finger i am fine. most of the time my pinky is curled back, yes i know a bad habit. tell me if you didnt get a word i said

Then don't use the pinky. Bar the 7th fret double stop with your index finger and then hammer to the 9th fret with your ring finger. Yea thats good you recognized it as bad but just fix it. The pinky adds a whole new dimension to playing.
