On the pull-off, make a motion as though you're flicking your finger down towards the floor rather than just lifting off, it'll give a more defined sound.

Sounds like you just need to practice your hammer-ons a little more, the volume will come as your fingers get stronger.

Thanks I've been learning Tendacious D'S song Tribute and it's mainly h-o's for every measure and most of the song. But They can do it really well and the h-o's are really strong and sound they they used a pick but didn't

So any exercise for the hammer ons and pull offs you can recommend?

You can do chromatic exercises to build up your finger strength:

Play 1h2h3h4 on each string, ascending using one finger per fret.
Then go 4p3p2p1 on each string, descending using one finger per fret.

Just continue that pattern all the way up and down the neck (or as far as you'd like to go) and you'll improve considerably. Practice consistently and correctly with this and you'll be good to go.

Ok thank you I'll do that exercise along with E mixolydain mode and a warm up exercise I use before I start playing.

I believe you can also boost the gain on your amp a bit to help bring them out a little bit, but not enough to create a drastic improvement. Its harder to do with clean settings, and acoustics as well.

Thanks all your advice is helping big time specially Hiss's.
