A bunch of songs im playing have "hammer on" i dont really understand this :S whats it mean and how do u do it
#2
Fret the string without picking it. As the name implies "hammer" it on. When you do the opposite thats called a pull-off.
Don't follow the trends. Do what feels right.

yup as mentioned above, no picking is required, hammer your finger on the required fret to produce the note and a pull off is the opposite, where your finger is pushing already on the string and then pull your finger off to produce the note while slightly plucking it to produce a well-defined sound.

Those are kind of incomplete definitions, for practicality's sake.

If a tab says 7h9, it means:

Play the 7th fret on whatever string, pluck the note, and then do as they say above - strike down with your left hand on the next fret without plucking again. You should get a smooth transition.

timi_hendrix, I'm pretty sure the threadstarter wants to know what a hammer-on looks like, not how it sounds.
