I'm learning a tenacious D song "tribute" right now and I'm having a hell of a time getting volume out of hammer ons and pull offs.

I don't know if it's my gear or my arm currently.

I had a pacemaker install little under a month ago and I couldn't use it for about 3 weeks and I started playing again last week.

So could it be my arm it self?

your volume isnt good.......... hmmm........ all i can think of is your volume on your guitar is down to low.... or maybe wen you hammer on you're not hitting the note precise enough.......... soz..... have no real advie for a situation like this my hammer ons are teh pwnage

The hammer-ons you might not be hitting hard enough, but as for the pull-offs make sure you're not just lifting your finger off the string. You want to put some force behind it; the motion should be as though you're trying to flick your finger down towards the floor.

If you're relatively new to guitar you probably just need to build up finger strength. You actually have to hammer on pretty hard to get it to ring loud and clear. I once got disillusioned with guitar for a while and stopped playing long enough for my callouses to go away and the next time I tried to hammer, it was murder!

Well I'm only 2 years in to playing and I had to learn the whole notes and stuff first before I could play ( that was murder lol )

Anyhoo I had quit about 4 months because I got discouraged for a while but guitar hero III is fueling my anger and making learning easy
