i have alot of trouble with those i cant can't seem to make it sound right i heard its harder to do it on an acoustic guitar which is what i have.

its simple you either pull off or hammer on. you put your finger on the desired note, or pull it off from the note...very simple.

edit: not trying to be mean, just I think its simple, and I wouldnt know how else to explain it...

Pull....

1. Press string down with your finger
2. Without hitting the string again, you have to put your finger on the other fret.


Hammer ons....

1. Press string down with your finger
2. Put another finger behind the already pressed fret
3. Quickly remove the finger that sustains the note.
Looking for a new sig!

Pull-off:

Place finger on 7th fret on G string.
Place next finger on 8th fret G string.
Pluck G string.
Slide finger off of 8th fret so that it "finger plucks" it.

Hammer-on:

Place finger on 7th fret G string.
Pluck G string.
"Hammer" next finger down on 8th fret. (Hard enough to make it sound out)

Either of these can be executed on any string/frets...

pull offs will be hard to make a nice sound on the acoustic, especially if the actions i much higher than an electric. Just keep working at it.

check these articles, thats what they are for http://ultimate-guitar.com/lessons/guitar_techniques/hammer_ons_and_pull_offs.html

Oh yeah, and if guitar hero got you into the guitar? you're really playing for the wrong reasons.

there is no wrong reason to play a guitar, except for world enslavement and extermination of certain races, but those guys never make it big anyway.

its mainly done on electric, you would have to hammer harder with your left hand (assuming your right handed) for it to sound good on acoustic, and pull off harder. theres lots of video lessons on this
